To be or not to be? To act or not to act? The questions are the same to Joe, a struggling (jobless) actor whose every sinew and synapse cries out to perform and to soften the blow of not landing a part in a mega budget sci-fi movie. So in the stalwart (desperate) tradition of actors everywhere, Joe vows to put on a show, a special (even more desperate) version of the greatest play in the English tongue.
