    Easter May Week

    Hamlet’s fucked on Strongbow, Claudius is passed out in the bushes, and Ophelia’s just had her stomach pumped. The edgy bitch.

    From the acclaimed writer of Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Sonnet 48, and presented by reprehensible comedy troupe CowsDrinkMilk (BBC Radio 4 Extra, Edinburgh Fringe), Shakespeare’s greatest and most Danish play descends on Cambridge again this May Week in a whirlwind of debauchery and controversy. It’s not the audience who will be drunk. It’s the actors.

    Inspired by the hit phenomenon from the Edinburgh Fringe, we will bring the finest thesps of Cambridge together, and each day randomly select two of them to get systematically and extravagantly plastered. When the show starts, the audience won’t know what’s going to happen, and neither will we.

    Come and have a drink at Elsinore. Just remember, adults shouldn’t regularly exceed three to four versions of Hamlet a term.
