HAMLET 2 Story

Hamlet 2 is about Dana Marschz who is a failed actor and recovering alcoholic who's moved to Tucson to teach high school drama, where he's plagued by bad reviews, student indifference, budget woes (he and his wife, who is trying to get pregnant, take in a border), and his own teaching limitations. Because the other electives are closed, he finds himself with a large class of seeming gangbangers, and the principal informs him that drama will be cut next trimester.

On the advice of a student reviewer, Dana decides to stage his own play, a sequel to "Hamlet" in which the prince and Jesus, with the use of a time machine, try to save Gertrude and Ophelia. Can Dana for once pull something off?
