The South Simcoe Theatre presents 'I Hate Hamlet'

This comedy tells the story of a mildly successful actor with a new and beautiful New York apartment, loving girlfriend, and an offer to play Hamlet.  But there are problems - his hit TV show got cancelled, his girlfriend won’t have sex with him, and his apartment is inhabited by the ghost of John Barrymore, who is on a personal mission to have Andrew fulfill his destiny as Hamlet, rather than return to TV acting.  This engaging story will keep audiences laughing throughout.

Event Time: Thurs, Fri and Sat - 8pm; Sun - 2pm
