Counsellor Suzie does not expect her next client to be the Prince of Denmark, but Hamlet needs serious advice.
His life is a mess. Suzie’s post-Freudian approach to this Elizabethan enigma proves a challenge for both counsellor and counselee, producing fireworks neither expect. He’s an arrogant hothead, she’s a cool professional and both are certain they can get inside the other’s head.
Smart and insightful, this new romantic comedy from UK playwright Albert Welling is full of surprises.

Nicole Hall – Susan
Nicole is a born-and-raised Kansas City stage and film actor, dancer, producer, writer, choreographer, and singer with a BFA from the University of Central Missouri – but mostly, you can catch her dancing in grocery store aisles, re-watching episodes of Golden Girls, and buying way too many earrings. Notable film credits include Cold Cut (her writing debut!), The Location Scout, Vy, I Am Lisa, available on various streaming services, and Let’s Start Over, currently screening in festivals all over the world. Recent stage credits include The Plume, American Idiot Live, The Odd Couple, Taming of the Shrew: a devised adaptation, the Love/Hate Burlesque Revue, and The Spooky Shit Show. All thanks and love to her parents, sisters and her fiancé, Matt.
Christoph David Cording – Hamlet
Christoph is a learn-on-the-job actor, singer, and, for lack of a better term, dancer from Kansas City. Though largely a character actor by preference, he's also had the privilege of portraying such leading roles as King Arthur in Camelot, Tom Wingfield in The Glass Menagerie, Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls, and Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire, and has just begun appearing in film projects in the last year. He has a Bachelor's in History from the University of Kansas, but has predominantly honed his craft on community and fringe theatre projects.
