A World Premiere by Next Act-favorite playwright Bill Cain.
Playing Hamlet is no easy task. In a troubled production, three successive actors fight their way through Shakespeare’s longest and most challenging role. Movie star Charlie, his understudy Rafe and the transcendent Tigg battle doubts, ghosts, the critics and each other while trying to prove that theirs is the performance to remember. There’s even a disco number to add to the craziness! Bill Cain has penned a thrilling, fast-moving love poem to writers, actors and everything that makes theatre the greatest show on Earth.
Author’s comment: “Is it possible to redefine a core document of civilization? THE LAST WHITE MAN is about trying to do a production of the best play ever written — and one that so exceeds all others that the play can be set aside and never done again.”
Cez says: “Playing Hamlet takes full measure of the actor, and if he (or she) isn’t up to the challenge, it can be a hard fall. This story celebrates the intrepid courage of actors, and as Bill Cain says, ‘living with grace and joy and a full hearted commitment to life.'”
