I Hate Hamlet

I Hate Hamlet

Artwork by Trevor Elliott

by Paul Rudnick

With his career in limbo, a young television star is offered the chance to play hamlet in the Park. Relocating to New york, he rents a mysterious, gothic apartment once inhabited by the great John Barrymore. Sounds ideal, no? Well, there’s a little problem: he loathes the Bard. Enter the ghost of Barrymore, conjured by an impromptu seance, who introduces our ambivalent young friend to the joys of fame, dames and melancholy Danes.
