I Hate Hamlet is a dramatic comedy written in 1991 by Paul Rudnick. Set in John Barrymore’s old apartment in New York City – at the time, the author’s real-life home – the play follows successful television actor Andrew Rally as he struggles with taking on the dream role of Hamlet, dealing with a girlfriend who is keeping a firm grip on her chastity, and playing host to the ghost of John Barrymore, who, clothed as Hamlet, has come back to earth for the sole purpose of convincing Rally to play the part. Possum Hall, January 27th and 28th, 8 P.M., January 29th, 2 P.M.
