Shortland Street takes on Shakespeare

The multi-talented Beth Allen is at it again and this time she's bringing a new twist on Shakespeare to the stage with Bard Day's Night, the latest play from Beth's own production company Royale Productions.

Bard Day's Night sees celebrated actor Michael Hurst join forces with two of New Zealand's freshest writing talents, including former Shortland Street actor Natalie Medlock, for an outrageous and at times profound view into one actor's attempt at self destruction.

Set after the conclusion of his play, the show follows Hamlet coming home to his dingy flat to face the final curtain. But can he make up his mind to do it? Hilarity follows when Macbeth, King Lear, and Othello arrive to help the hapless prince decide whether or not to be or not to be... or not.

You can catch Bard Day's Night at the Basement Theatre in Auckland for one week only from Monday 21st May. 11, 12
