The Half

7th Feb 2013 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions / £5 Edge Hill students

A 50 year old actor, down on his luck, attempts to reverse
his fortunes by doing a one man show. Nothing
new there… except that he’s chosen Shakespeare’s Hamlet – uncut –
four-and-a-half hours! He’s sold his car
and his father’s gold watch to pay for it all and his wife has left him. Everything rides on it. It’s his opening night – 35 minutes before
curtain up (The Half) and he is starting to unravel… Will he make it to the
stage or will he self-destruct?

“Witnessing the
spectacle of a man having a sword fight with himself is worth the admission
price alone!”
 Rip It Up Magazine – Adelaide

“Brilliantly
executed, side-achingly funny
!” Glam Adelaide ***
