Stage Blood

By Charles Ludlam
Directed by Michael Goldfried


The Caucasian Theatrical Company is in trouble: the company’s patriarch is found dead and their Ophelia has gone missing.
In this midst of the worst Shakespeare production of all time, the plot of this backstage murder mystery thickens as the young man playing hamlet must avenge his father’s death – onstage and off.

“Every drop of this Stage Blood is rich royal blue: its as perfect a rendering of the play as one can hope for!
I haven’t laughed this much in a very long time… Ludlam, I think, would be proud”.
Martin Denton, The New York Theatre Experience
