Online Show #3 – The Middle

The Middle (2013)

Inspired by Hamlet, The Middle is a one-man show devised for a theatre foyer – a liminal space between outside and inside, the real world and the theatre. Hamlet is a character caught in a limbo between ‘To be or not to be’ and by casting his father, Tony, to play the title role, Michael explored time passing, ageing and the relationship between father and son. Supported by Curve (Leicester), hÅb (Manchester) and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (Lincoln), The Middle was the final part of The Shakespeare Trilogy (2014) and took place in the interval between The Beginning and The End.
