In Hamlet In Bed, Michael is an 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 whom he believes to be his actual birthmother, and lures her into a noirish production of Hamlet playing the role of the queen, his mother. Rehearsals expose the complicated inner lives of each actor and bring them ever closer to the slippery truth of their relationship.

Hamlet In Bed is a darkly comic and poignant 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.
