Hamlet the Dame

Hamlet the Dame

Overview

A modern vlog-style series based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Which you probably guessed from the title and the fact that it’s a web series. This one is made by the creators of The Adventures of Jamie Watson (and Sherlock Holmes) and The Blair Goddess Project.

It’s Hamlet, but gender bent. Angry non-binary dame, dead father, a lot of stupid mistakes, and a tragic ending. It also comes with some trigger warnings and addresses a lot of LGBTQIA issues, mental health, and death. Can you imagine if Hamlet had a therapist? Or Twitter? #iknewhimhoratio.

Anyway, it’s Hamlet, and like always she spends four acts poncing about and getting everyone killed, only to die in the end. So the show gets a super low score for killing pretty much everyone queer except Yorick.

Go figure.
