Exclusive Asian Premiere

Séance meets documentary

“An extraordinary achievement. Technically a marvel, with a wit and love of its subjects that’s incredibly moving.” Benedict Cumberbatch

When award-winning lip synch maestro and intrepid drag fabulist, Dickie Beau, realised that he might never play The Dane, he decided instead to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theatre's most famous role, to “re-member” the ghosts of Hamlet from the past.

Along the way, he stumbled upon the story of one especially masterful Hamlet; one that left an indelible mark on all who saw it. But it is a Hamlet that can never be “re-membered” because no recording exists. Except in the memories of those who were there.

Humorous and haunting, featuring original interview footage with internationally renowned figures such as Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Richard Eyre, as well as exclusive finds from behind the scenes, Re-Member Me is part documentary theatre, part 21st century séance, and the unforgettable story behind the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.
