“A hilarious yet profound tragedy smothered in comedy.”—New York Times  

In this Pulitzer Prize–winning take on Hamlet written by James Ijames and directed by Saheem Ali, Juicy is a young, queer Black man with a Shakespearean-sized dilemma. When the ghost of his dead father shows up at his family’s BBQ wedding reception demanding his murder be avenged, does the poetic and sensitive Juicy have it in him to do the deed, or will he “to thine own self be true”?  

Fat Ham premiered in 2022 at the Public Theater as a co-production between the National Black Theatre and the Public Theater, made its Broadway premiere in 2023, and comes direct from Broadway to Los Angeles. 

The Geffen Playhouse has been a hub of the Los Angeles theater scene since opening its doors in 1995. Noted for its intimacy and celebrated for its renowned mix of classic and contemporary plays as well as provocative world premiere productions, the not-for-profit organization continues to present a body of work that garners national recognition.

Presented by USC Visions and Voices.
