A chorus of Hooded Watchers serve as "instruments of the state" projecting imagery as facts, evidence and knowledge. Body scanners, drones, and blades converge in this generational conflict as young Hamlet fights to know the truth and save the nation.

BIG BROTHER HAMLET'S principle scenic element is computer projection: a drone appears on stage and projects live audience images, onstage programmers take shifts at a laptop during the show, the projected ghost of Hamlet’s father moves and changes throughout the space, Hamlet’s journey to England is tracked as a blue dot on a map, and blades and passions fly!
