Photo Flash: First Look at Michael Laurence and Annette O'Toole in HAMLET IN BED

HAMLET IN BED, written by Michael Laurence and directed by Lisa Peterson, is currently in previews for a September 17, 2015 opening. HAMLET IN BED plays at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 224 Waverly Place. Joining Mr. Laurence in the cast is Annette O'Toole. The production runs through Sunday, October 25. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the stars in action below!

Michael is a neurotic actor and adoptee obsessed with two things -- finding his real mother, and playing the famous gloomy Dane. His twin fixations collide when he tracks down Anna, a reclusive former actress-turned-barfly; gripped by the notion that she might be his actual birth-mother, he first stalks her from a distance, then lures her into a noirish production of Hamlet playing the role of his mother the queen. HAMLET IN BED is a twisty and darkly comic story about mothers and sons -- about what it means to live a life in the theatre, both a generation ago, and now -- and about families -- the ones we're born into, and the ones we find along the way.
