‘…or not to be’

My new three minute film – shot on my i-phone during the 2nd lockdown in November 2020 – including footage of an empty central London…

Taking his cue from Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’, an actor wrestles with the new realities of COVID and the closure of all theatres for the foreseeable future.  Is there any point in carrying on at all?  But actors have worn masks (comic and tragic) since plays were first performed in ancient Greece; and on a journey through a deserted capital city, the actor sees something that encourages a fragile optimism.
