Hamlet vs. Zombies: Something is Rotting In the State of Denmark!
An Original work by Bryant Turnage with Jeff Jenkins. A highly charged, action-fueled remake of William Shakespeare’s timeless classic that finally answers the question:
What would happen if Denmark was attacked by a zombie horde? Now we know.
This irreverent take on one of the most infamous works in the English language gives a new spin on the lives, loves and losses of these unforgettable characters.
Claudius, brother to the King, has developed a plan to usurp the throne of Denmark: kill The King, seize the crown. His thirst for power unquenched, he gambles one step further by infecting a platoon of his best soldiers with a zombie virus. No opposing force could destroy an army that is already dead. Hamlet, along with his trusted sidekick Horatio, fight in a race against to the clock to stop Claudius before it’s too late and Denmark is overrun by the walking dead.
Sure to be an audience favorite, Hamlet vs. Zombies and its stimulating, innovative and laugh-out-loud tale that will eat its way into your heart, soul, and brains!
