Fat Ham

APRIL 12 – MAY 12, 2024

Bagley Wright Theater

2022 Pulitzer Prize Winner, 2023 Tony Award Nominee

Juicy, a young queer Black man, has a lot on his plate. His mother just married his uncle after the untimely death of his father, whose ghost appears at a family barbecue demanding that Juicy avenge his murder. Sound familiar? Fresh from its Broadway debut, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet is a sparkling and uproarious new comedy about seeking love and liberation.
