More madness from Michael Green's hilarious Coarse Acting series ...

Umlaut, Prince of Düsseldorf imagines a hapless and incompetent theatre company attempting a condensed version of Hamlet

Cue bungled lines, an over-eager smoke machine operator and a severely injured Cup Bearer

The ghost is determined to ruin all of Umlaut's best speeches while Hildegard, the Coarse Acting version of Ophelia, keeps forgetting that she's supposed to be dead

Cast and crew battle on regardless - surely the audience won't have noticed a thing?
