‘One of the most moving, authentic and quite unique entertainments ever devised about theatre.’
When award-winning lip synch maestro Dickie Beau realised he might never play The Dane, he decided to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. Channelling audio recordings of great historical performances of theatre's most famous role, he created a humorous and haunting solo show to ‘re-member’ the ghosts of Hamlets past.
Along the way, he stumbled upon the story of one especially masterful Hamlet; one that left an indelible mark on all who saw it but one can never be ‘re-membered’ – because no recording exists, except in the memories of those who were there.
Featuring original interviews with theatre legends such as Sir Ian McKellen and Sir John Gielgud, as well as exclusive finds from behind the scenes, Re-Member Me is part documentary theatre, part 21st century séance and the unforgettable story behind the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.
