Hamlet-Mobile is an immersive, site-specific adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet staged in a cargo van. It consists of 8 different short pieces performed for audiences of 1 to 4 people. On a given night, the Hamlet-Mobile parks in a predetermined location then performs one of the eight pieces on a loop for several hours. 

Hamlet-Mobile was published in the Applause anthology Best Plays From American Theater Festivals 2015. It won "Best Game Design" at the 2016 IndieCade Festival of Independent Games and was nominated for "Best of Dance and Physical Theater” at the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival.
