Andre Tchaikowsky bequeaths skull to Royal Shakespeare Company
Herald Sun – by Charles Miranda

“Andre Tchaikowsky, a concert pianist and composer, never achieved his dream of becoming an actor, so he bequeathed his skull to the Royal Shakespeare Company. It has sat in a box in the props department, untouched, for 25 years. Now, it has made its stage debut at a Hamlet production in Shakespeare's former town of Stratford-upon-Avon, starring TV's Doctor Who David Tennant. "It was sort of a shock tactic, though of course to some extent that wears off and it's just Andre in his box," production director Greg Doran said. The pianist, who died at 46 of cancer, left the rest of his body to science.
It sat in Yikes, kids.
