Royale Productions presents Michael Hurst in No Holds Bard (a.k.a. Frequently Asked Questions)
"...a performance that would grace any stage in the world" (Theatreview)
The show is over, the audience has left, and Hamlet comes home to his dingy flat to face the final curtain. But can he make up his mind to do it? Hilarity follows when Macbeth, King Lear, and Othello arrive to help the hapless prince decide whether or not to be or not to be... or not.
No Holds Bard sees celebrated actor Michael Hurst join forces with two of New Zealand's freshest writing talents for an outrageous and at times profound view into one actor's attempt at self destruction.
Hurst's debut solo performance melds his mastery of the Shakespearean form with an irreverent comic edge.
No Holds Bard: absurdity, schizophrenia and blank verse.
