Fat Ham

Pride Theater

What’s Happening?


BY JAMES IJAMES 
DIRECTED BY STEVIE WALKER-WEBB
 
Fat Ham, the deliciously funny, Pulitzer Prize-winning new play, makes its Atlanta debut at Alliance Theatre following its critically acclaimed Broadway run. Playwright James Ijames has reinvented Shakespeare's masterpiece, Hamlet, creating what The New York Times calls “a hilarious yet profound tragedy smothered in comedy.” 

Juicy is a queer, Southern college kid, already grappling with some serious questions of identity, when the ghost of his father shows up at their backyard barbecue, demanding that Juicy avenge his murder. But here's the rub! Revenge doesn't come easy to Juicy, a sensitive and self-aware young Black man in search of his own happiness and liberation. From an uproarious family cookout emerges a compelling examination of love, loss, masculinity, pain and joy. 


PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH HUNTINGTON THEATRE COMPANY AND FRONT PORCH ARTS COLLECTIVE
