It is twenty years before the events of Shakespeare's play Hamlet. Yorick, the King's trusted jester and sometimes confidante, is caught in a web of treachery and murder as he struggles to be true to his King and to protect the infant Prince Hamlet. There is treason against the very dynasty of the King; and now someone is killing off, one by one, the jesters of Elsinor. Shakespeareans have argued for four hundred years about the backstory to Hamlet; now you can experience the events as told in Yorick's own words.
