WHAT A PIECE OF WORK! is an original multidisciplinary performance piece, inspired by Shakespeare’s timeless tale of a certain Danish prince who tragically failed to take action before it was too late. The production considers the responsibility each of us has to meet the challenges presented by the dangerously uncertain times in which we live. WHAT A PIECE OF WORK! is about resisting anything that lulls us into complacency.
