Hamlet is dead. What next? APPROPRIATION, written by Paul Gilchrist, tells the imagined story of Fortinbras, a rash hothead who learns from his politically gifted wife when to wield a sword and when to weave a story. Raw, poetic and darkly funny, the performance is a surgical assault on how we use stories to establish power and gain prestige.
