    This contemporary adaption of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, set in the American South, explores big issues (like toxic masculinity and cycles of violence) with a light touch. Fat Ham is the latest from award-winning playwright and Wilma Co-Artistic Director James Ijames (Kill Move Paradise).

    This is a fully staged digital production, which will be filmed on location in Virginia following strict health guidelines, in one dynamic take. After you complete your purchase, you will be sent a link to view the recording on demand anytime from April 29th until May 23rd.
