Deceptively simple and incredibly effective animation shows what happens when a group of rambunctious schoolchildren, their exasperated but strict teacher, and a very large man share a row of seats in a theatre during a performance of William Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’. Fidgety and mischievous kids, ringing cellphones, malfunctioning lighting, the skull from Hamlet’s monologue and an inexperienced firefighter combine to provide five solid minutes of hilarity – all in black, white and grey silhouette.
