The production of Andrey Prikotenko is a riddle and an invitation to its solution at the same time. What will happen if the characters of the famous theatrical plot are sent on a journey through the consciousness of the main character of our day - a sociopath?

How will you react if these characters are deprived of their accustomed frames of existence and forced to fight in verbal (and not only) ironical battles? What do the popular book «The Universe in a Nutshell» and the multimedia reality have to do with it?


«Sociopath / Hamlet» is the author's variation of a well-known story. The director of the performance Andrey Prikotenko: "«Sociopath / Hamlet» is not a Shakespearean work, there is only the story of Hamlet. We offer you a new text, my variation of the plot. «To be or not to be» doesn’t sound relevant today. People want to say something else on this topic. Why a sociopath? Today it is the most common type. And this type chose the position: he remained interesting only to himself, inside his own world, and completely insensitive to the environment".
