The cast of Hamlet gets hit with food poisoning, Yorick's skull goes missing and the police arrive to shut down the production because the producer hasn't paid the rent. When the critic from the Chicago Tribune shows up to review their production, the techies decide there is only one way to save their reputations - the critic must die. They decide to "accidentally" drop a lighting fixture on him from the grid. As the production comes to its hilarious end, it's no wonder that Headsets has been called the Noises Off of technical theatre.
