Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, is
directed by John Butterfield, and adapted for Butterfield 8 by Maureen-Theresa Williams.
In England, Queen Victoria continues her reign. Around the world, the harnessing of steam power for the benefit of mankind has allowed the speculations of visionaries such as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells to become reality.
In Denmark, the King has died under mysterious circumstances, and his Queen has been remarried-- to the late King's brother. The Prince, Hamlet, suspects his uncle had a hand in his father's death, but what can he do to prove it-- and after proving it, revenge it? Shakespeare's classic tragedy comes to life in the Steampunk style.
