The Ten Minute Hamlet – very funny large cast comedy

funny large cast comedy script


Meet Miguel Hernandez. He is the protagonist of this funny large cast comedy script. When young Miguel is sentenced to community service at an old folks home he initially thinks he’s up for yet another colossal waste of his life. After a few minutes there, he learns very quickly that The Aurora Arms retirement home houses anything but waste. Aurora is the dwelling of a dynamic bunch of retirees who would rather spend their time spending it for goodness sake! They are not dead, yet!

Accepting that he won’t get away with murder, excuse the pun, Miguel realizes fast that it is not only he that needs some rehabilitating… and that’s where Hamlet saunters in. You see Hamlet is Miguel’s buddy, a heartrending figure in the young convict’s life, one who takes his time, is quite popular and inspires many with his reach. Hamlet is a play. And Miguel is going to direct this emotionally compelling and almost too influential
Shakespearean tragedy with the use of Aurora Arms retirement homes’ residents. Oh, and in ten minutes.
