Lust is the root of all troubles in Elsinore in this fresh and often funny take on Hamlet. A gravedigger at work in the cemetery outside the palace walls is directly confronted with the tribulations of the royals as they battle desire, betrayal, incest and ultimately, tragedy. Told with Shakespearian dialogue, as the gravedigger ponders his own destiny, we're left to wonder who writes one's role in the world.
