Michael is a neurotic actor and adoptee obsessed with two things- finding his real mother, and playing the famous Gloomy Dane. His twin fixations collide when he tracks down Anna, a reclusive former actress-turned-barfly; gripped by the notion that she might be his actual birth-mother, he first stalks her from a distance, then lures her into a noirish production of Hamlet playing the role of the queen, his mother. Hamlet in Bed is a twisty and darkly comic story about mothers and sons. About what it means to live a life in the theatre, both a generation ago, and now. And about families- the ones we’re born into, and the ones we find along the way.

A dark comedy from Drama-Desk nominated playwright & performer Michael Laurence, directed by two-time OBIE winning director Lisa Peterson, and featuring Emmy & Golden-Globe nominated actress Annette O’Toole.
