Fat Ham – Play

September 4 September 22

Otto M. Budig Theatre

$14 – $76

fat ham

See Cincinnati Shakespeare’s Fat Ham at the Otto M. Budig Theatre from September 4 – 22.

Weeks after his father’s funeral, Juicy, a queer Black man, finds himself at a barbeque with his family and friends. But here’s the rub: the barbeque is a wedding reception for his mother and his uncle.

When the ghost of Juicy’s father appears like a specter out of the smoke, demanding vengeance for his murder, Juicy learns revenge is a dish best served “char-cold.” This sweet and spicy reimaging of Shakespeare’s Hamlet serves up a feast of drama, with loyalty, identity, and power dynamics on the menu

Tickets to Fat Ham

Tickets to Fat Ham range from $14 – $74.
