1. Theres something rotten in the state of jobstown Youth Horizons Drama Group The Film is based on the story of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Hamo is in despair. His father a notorious drug dealer, has just died and the ghost of his father visits him. His father’s ghost informs Hamo him that Bosco, his uncle has murdered him in order to take over his empire. Thus ensues the dilemma. Should Hamo take revenge, and more importantly how?
