Call Me Oz

 

Review


In Call Me Oz, playwright and actor Richard Curnow takes up the character of Osric, a lesser courtier from Shakespeare's Hamlet. The play begins decades after the final events of the play, and an aging and reclusive Osric, now living in a small one bedroom apartment, is finally persuaded to tell his version of what really happened all those years ago at Elsinore.  Familiarity with the plot and characters of Hamlet is essential to understanding Curnow's play. Fringe-goers who don't, for instance, know who Laertes is won't get much out of Call Me Oz.  Even so, for even casual Shakespeare fans, the play is worthwhile. Curnow's delivery—while impeded here and there by periodic enunciation foibles, and the kind of botched character transitions that so compromise a one-person show—is nonetheless witty, sonorous, and deliciously camp. -Will Belton
