FORTINBRAS is the story of what happened after Hamlet – the sequel, if you prefer. In the story, Fortinbras has been granted via Hamlet’s dying words the key to the kingdom of Denmark. Upon arriving and being told the story of lust, betrayal, murder, suicide, and just plain old dithering, Fortinbras decides this story won’t do for his plan to consolidate his power, and orders Horatio and his underlings to make up a new, better, more noble and palatable story as to how he obtained his position. The ghosts of Hamlet come back to haunt Fortinbras, in order to force him to let the truth be told. A humorous tale, but one with a real message for our times – the importance of the TRUTH!
