Fat Ham | Theatre Philadelphia

Fat Ham

A world premiere filmed production.
The ghost of Juicy’s dad haunts him and asks for revenge – on Juicy’s uncle, who has now married his widowed mom. Sound familiar? Yes, but …

This contemporary adaption of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, set in the American South, explores big issues (like toxic masculinity and cycles of violence) with a light touch. Fat Ham is the latest from award-winning playwright and Wilma Co-Artistic Director James Ijames (Kill Move Paradise, WHITE).
