You Killed Hamlet, or Guilty Creatures Sitting At A Play. Naked Empire Bouffon Company makes their Montreal debut with their outrageously original hit show. The profound pranksters, Shreds & Patches, become a funhouse mirror of your discomfort with death for an hour of high impact satirical sport.

You Killed Hamlet premiered at the 2012 San Francisco Fringe Festival and was honoured with two sold-out awards, a Best of the Fringe award, and an encore performance. We were then invited to the 2013 Toronto Festival of Clowns where we earned this accolade:

“It is a rare and needed opportunity to experience a bouffon duo with such incredible complicity and virtuosity. You Killed Hamlet is a joy ride of vice and provocation. These two tricksters dare their audience to go unscathed. We are revealed and called out while we howl with pleasure. A must see!”
