Hamletmachine is a postmodernist drama by German playwright and theatre director Heiner Müller, which premiered in 1977. The nine-page play originated in relation to Müller’s translation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. The play connects a sequence of monologues, where the protagonist leaves his role and reflects on being an actor. Hamletmachine is presented by Cutting Ball in tandem with the RISK IS THIS series reading Who is Heiner Muller or The End of History by Mark Jackson.
