Co-presented by Q Theatre and Binge Culture as part of MATCHBOX 2018

In the midst of the ruin of an exploded production of Hamlet and some musical (Cats?), three of New Zealand’s top performers strike out on an optimistic quest to understand mortality.

Stranded on a dark stage, these adventurers endeavour to bring death into the light. They doggedly fight to keep the audience upbeat and the spectacle huge, but as music, dance and theatre collide, their own mortal truth is sneaking in from behind the curtain...

From the fear of the unknown, the vastness of outer space and those bad jokes you inevitably make at funerals, Yorick! sends our reality into hilarious, moonwalking disarray and leaves us with the only certainty - our end is on its way. With songs.
