Inside Hamlet 2017 (Second Run)
November 3 @ 08:00 - November 5 @ 17:00euro390
Your country is aflame with the fires of revolution.
The court of King Claudius is isolated in a bunker beneath the castle-fortress of Elsinore and you refuse to let go of power.
Anyone could see that the days of the Kingdom are numbered. But not you. You linger on the edge of action, escaping deeper into decadent madness and murderous paranoia.
Your folly is the curse of Hamlet – a numbing fear of decisive action. It will kill you in the end.
All of you.
Inside Hamlet is a larp about the last days of the depraved court of Claudius, in an alternate 1930’s timeline. A larp about lies and passion, desperation and unhinged lusts, about paranoia and death. A chance to step into the shoes of a corrupt courtier, watch Ophelia die without raising a finger, watch the Houses of Elsinore fall while you try to drown your own despair in debauchery. All this, just to avoid the inevitable – you have to make a choice; To be or not to be?
In Inside Hamlet, you will spend two nights and a day exploring the difficult choices that the last courtiers, guests and officers of King Claudius court have in front of them. Through three acts, you will have the chance to party, conspire, seek political power, organize the defenses of Denmark, regret your sins and seek redemption, only to most likely die in the end along with everyone else. Every character is a rich, prewritten one with many ties of love, friendships, rivalries and enemies that will give you a truly immersive experience while the story of Hamlet proceeds in theatrical moments around you.
