ABOUT HAMLET VS ZOMBIES: SOMETHING IS ROTTING IN THE STATE OF DENMARK
Hamlet vs. Zombies: Something is Rotting In the State of Denmark!
An Original work by Bryant Turnag and 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.
Already a crtical and audience favorite, here is what has been said about HvZ:

“Hamlet vs. Zombies: Something is Rotting in the State of Denmark, is, like I said, a whole ton o’ fun to watch. If you are at all a fan of the zombie thriller then this, my friend, is for you… if somebody made you read Hamlet in high school, then this, my friend, is for you… if you’re a fan of pop culture in general, then this, my friend, is for you.”- David Norman, tagsgf.com

“saw Hamlet v. Zombies last night … it’s a hoot, a palpable hoot! It’s not just a run-through of Hamlet with a zombie thrown in now and then … no, it’s a slice-and-dice riff on the tale of the melancholy Dane that is brisk and bright and fun … highly recommended”- Kelly
