I Hate Hamlet tells the story of an early 90’s TV actor, Andrew Rally, taking a role outside of his comfort zone — the title role in Hamlet for Shakespeare in the Park. The NYC apartment Andrew finds himself inhabiting happens to be a former residence of the late John Barrymore, who also portrayed Hamlet during his years. Via seance, Barrymore is brought back to life and instructs Andrew how to perfect the role, despite disagreements and sometimes physical skirmishes between them.
