Cast: 16 actors, Flexible. In the final moments of Hamlet, the dying prince pleads with his one, true friend, Horatio, to tell his story to those who would otherwise not understand his life and death. And Flights of Angels is Horatio's response; it is Horatio's Hamlet. What secret did Horatio know? What would he never repeat? What would he emphasize? And how should the story be told? since "the play's the thing," Horatio gathers a troupe of actors to "play the play." This allows the director great creativity in casting and technical values. If you have always wanted to do Hamlet but felt it was just too difficult, this is your chance. Bare stage or unit set.
