Description

Hamlet is bored and restless. His friend Horatio can't work him out-but who can? His father has just died, and his mother has already remarried. He seems damaged by the sudden changes in his life. Or maybe he was always a little damaged. Or maybe he wasn't. John Marsden reimagines Shakespeare's classic Hamlet.

Author description

A flamboyant and controversial gay lawyer from an unfashionable suburb who worked his way into Sydney society, John Marsden has been memorably described by Phillip Adams as an 'Antipodean Oscar Wilde'.
