50-Minute Hamlet 2016 poster with Laura St John and Christopher Prentice for The Shakespeare Project of Chicago

Return of The Dane

Chris returns for another round of the Shakespeare Project of Chicago's 50-Minute Hamlet. The production, adapted and directed by Jeff Christian, condenses Shakespeare's four-hour, 24-character masterpiece into a two-handed, just-under-an-hour bit of entertainment.

Chris plays Guy, who plays Hamlet, and joins Laura St. John, who originated the role of Gal, who plays everyone else.

Originally devised for schools, the show now plays events around Chicagoland. For more info, and to book a show, visit shakespeareprojectchicago.org.
