'To do or not to do.' Faced with the death of his father, H's life is thrown into chaos. As the world around him becomes more and more surreal; he begins to question what is real and what is fiction? Feeling immense pressure from his family and friends H begins to retreat into himself and struggles to get through each day. Inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet, the Anthos Young Company use a mixture of original text, devised scenes and physical theatre to bring this story into the 21st Century. The story flickers between the modern 'H' and that of 'Hamlet' as the two figures contemplate what they should do and their own place in the world around them. The play explores the issue of mental health in a new and innovative way. Our young company have chosen to use the piece to discuss the wellbeing of young people which remains a key concern in society today. It's OK not to be OK.
