the king of  rags and stitches (Take Me Somewhere)

'3 Princes inhabit a dark stage dressed in dusty ghost-like costumes. All attempting to stage their own version of the Shakespearean play 'Hamlet' the work tosses and turns between bickering children, mansplaining condescension, tender reflections on Ophelia's death and alternative presentations of Hamlet's famous speech. Wrapped in its own blind self-importance, it is a damning parody of the boring and age old male echo-chamber that can be the theatre, and performed by a cast of men, seeks to pull it down from the inside.'

- peter mcmaster
