After pushing Hamlet to the limit, the Factory Theatre have finally sung the Prince to his rest — for now. The troupe are now ready to undertake their 2nd Theatre Experiment, which, to mix science and sport metaphors, they're simply calling Round 1.

The round will be fought for three nights starting this Sunday, at Shoreditch's very shiny Electricity Showrooms. Tickets are on sale but the mysterious details are limited to a few lines:

16 Writers

A Gang of Actors

1 Live Band

A Maximum of 10 Minutes Per Piece

You, The Audience

DING DING

ROUND 1

A GIG, A BATTLE, A NIGHT OF THEATRE

This might sound like an evening at Hockley-in-the-Hole, but knowing the talent behind the Factory, it'll be something even more entertaining than that. Londonist will report back in the aftermath.
