FAT HAM by James Ijames

In this delectably comic, Pulitzer Prize-winning reinvention of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, an uproarious family barbecue instigates a compelling examination of love and loss, pain and joy.


Content Warning: Strong Language, Violence, and Sexual Activity:

Throughout Fat Ham, several characters use frequent expletives in their regular speech, enact violence onstage, and discuss sexual activity in detail. This production is suitable for ages 16 and up.


Dates: February 8th-February 25th. Thursdays-Sundays.
