No Holds Bard

Driven to the brink by the infidelity of his wife and a lack of acting opportunities, an aging thespian confronts his demons in what he hopes will be a final “dark night of the soul”. The problem is, his demons are as crazy as he is. A glorious tour de force in which four of Shakespeare’s greatest creations (a foul-mouthed Macbeth, a confused Hamlet, a know-it-all Othello, and a really hungry King Lear) come kicking and screaming into the bursting deranged brain of a single man. An outrageous and, at times, profound view into one actor’s attempt at self destruction.

In a career spanning over 40 years, Michael Hurst has become one of New Zealand’s leading actors and directors. In the 1990s he came to international prominence as Iolaus in the US television series “Hercules – The Legendary Journeys”. Renowned for his work with Shakespeare, Michael received an ONZM in 2005 and is a New Zealand Arts Laureate.

Includes 30 minutes Q & A with Michael Hurst after the performance.
