When award-winning performer and lip synch maestro Dickie Beau realised he might never play the Dane, he decided instead to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theatre's most famous role, to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet from the past. Haunting the set of Robert Icke's Hamlet, this solo satellite show is the story of Dickie's failed quest to become the Über-Hamlet ... and why he got distracted on the way.
Part documentary theatre, part twenty first century séance, a personal adventure in cultural archaeology and a very contemporary ghost story. It is an ode to the impermanence of personhood, procrastination, and the presence of absence on the haunted stage.
