"Are we really free in the face of our choices?"
Passion, sweat and conflicts of a young theater company struggling with the creation of a new production. They have to stage William Shakespeare's play "Hamlet", one of the best-known tragedies of the theater. And so, without financial means and with only two actors, they have to create and rehearse their new show ...
The professional roles of the actors intertwine with their characters as the work of Hamlet is made.
The more one goes on in the tragedy, the more the different visions of the profession, of art and of life collide, until Hamlet comes to life almost without realizing it through the members of the company themselves. Just as Hamlet does in Shakespeare's play, with The Mousetrap, we too use a company of Comedians to bring to light some of the truths hidden in the tragedy.
The show is a tragedy in a comedy key.
The nerve center of the whole performance is undoubtedly the parallelism between Hamlet's "being and not being" and that of the performers, who at the end of their rehearsal turn reach the essence of their being actors, in the conviction of their own actions and own craft
