YOUNG WICK THEATRE COMPANY – THE FIFTEEN MINUTE HAMLET
Affiliated to Wick Theatre Company, the Young Wick group was formed in 2001. Members are aged from 12-18 and the company is based at the Barn Theatre in Southwick.
Young Wick is directed by William McDonald and Zoey Attree, two of the longest serving members, and produced by the talented Mark Best, who won the award for Best Director (of Young Wick’s “Multiplex”) in the 2006 Brighton & Hove Arts Council Drama Festival.
The Company now presents “The Fifteen Minute Hamlet” by Tom Stoppard.
The play condenses Shakespeare’s Hamlet into an hilarious 13 minutes of on-stage action, with all the best-known scenes included – ghosts, murder, mayhem and all. Then, just as the audience is getting its breath back, someone presses the fast-forward button and there’s an incredible two-minute encore!
