The ghost of Juicy’s dad haunts him and asks for revenge – on Juicy’s uncle, who has now married his widowed mom. Sound familiar? Yes, but … This contemporary, funny, and poignant 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. This is a fully staged filmed production, which has been captured on location in Virginia following strict health guidelines, in a series of long takes.
