THE LAST WHITE MAN by Bill Cain: Playing Hamlet is no easy task. In a troubled production, three successive actors fight their way through Shakespeare’s longest and most challenging role. Movie star Charlie, his understudy Rafe and the transcendent Tigg battle doubts, ghosts, the critics and each other while trying to prove that theirs is the performance to remember. There’s even a disco number to add to the craziness! Bill Cain has penned a thrilling, fast-moving love poem to writers, actors and everything that makes theatre the greatest show on Earth.

Cez says: “Playing Hamlet takes full measure of the actor, and if he (or she) isn’t up to the challenge, it can be a hard fall. This story celebrates the intrepid courage of actors, and as Bill Cain says, “living with grace and joy and a full-hearted commitment to life.”
