About this project

For years I've dreamed of mounting one of Shakespeare's most glorious works with nature's most glorious creation:  The Pug.

This will be the first-ever (that I'm aware of) all-pug production of "Hamlet."  The actors will be pugs--even Gertrude.

It will be an amazing theatrical event.  Please help us bring it to life.

*If the project is fully funded, we can film it so people who can't travel to see the show can still receive a link to view the production in lieu of an actual ticket.

Risks and challenges

Risks:

- Keeping the pugs happy.
- Feeding the pugs.
- Finding pugs who don't mind being a part of a five-hour play.

Solutions:

- I love pugs.
- We'll use the money for food.
- We may have to let them nap onstage.
