Gravedigger's Tale, Hamlet, Louis Butelli, Robert Richmond
Gravedigger’s Tale is a new interactive one-man play based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The play, developed by director Robert Richmond (Folger Theatre’s Julius Caesar, Richard III, Henry V and more), features the Gravedigger, who appears to have much more knowledge about court life in Elsinore than originally thought.
He arrives with a trunk and a book and responds to questions from the audience using the text from Hamlet.
Louis Butelli Plays the Gravedigger.   His credits include The Folger Theatre: Mary Stuart, Julius Ceasar and 12th Night for which he received a Helen Hayes nomination.   He has appeared in numerous regional productions and off Broadway at The New Victory.  On television he was seen in The Knick, Law and Order, Law and Order:Criminal Intent, The Unusuals and All My Children.  He has done numerous national and international tours and is the co-founder of Psittacus Productions.
