Killing My Lobster in Association with PlayGround Presents:

The Shakespeare Bug

A New Play by Ken Slattery

Join us for this world premiere comedic play written by award-winning playwright, Ken Slattery, and directed by award-winning director, M. Graham Smith.
(San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle winner of Best Original Script, Best Director 'Truffaldino Says No')

Something's rotten in the city of San Francisco. A modern-day Hamlet is forced to play out the story of his namesake when his eccentric family contracts a mysterious illness on Opening Night. Thrust into a world where actions are amplified to Shakespearean proportions, Hamlet finds himself caught in a revolving door of tragedy and comedy. He is forced to answer the question: If all the world's a stage, how does he know what role to play?
