Prince Hamlet is having a rough time. His father has died, and his mother has quickly married his father’s slimy brother, effectively robbing him of his inheritance. Worse yet, the ghost of his father appears in the night to inform Hamlet that he was killed by his brother, Hamlet’s uncle.
What would you do? Trust the word of a ghost and avenge your father’s death? What if the ghost is simply an agent of Satan tempting you to revenge in order to damn your eternal soul? Who do you trust when all your oldest friends seem intent on cozying up to the new king, your uncle? Faced with this enormous weight of responsibility and misery, would you carry on or give up and end your own life?
Explore these and more questions with us in our inaugural production of Hamlet. Cut down to 90 minutes with no intermission, this show will feature a cast of seven actors playing all the roles in William Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy.
Presented in partnership with The Hof.
