Hamlet Little

Hamlet Little


A father’s death unleashes a Shakespearean bout of schizophrenia in a South London council block. In Hamlet Little, perpetual use of voice-over externalises the inner world of a schizophrenic young man wrestling with homicidal tendencies. His dual world is described using Shakespeare’s original dialogue, spoken only by himself but then imagined and heard in voice-over by respondents. The objective world, populated by modern characters, runs parallel to that of the source plot.
