Directed by Rodrigo Beilfuss
Prince Hamlet has it all: youth, wealth, and freedom. Then his father dies, his mother marries his uncle and he loses the right to the crown. Returning home from college, he finds his country a foreign land and the ghost of his father trapped in limbo. Will the Prince conform to his new reality, or will he rage against the machine?
Shakespeare’s most popular play and the touchstone of English classical theatre, HAMLET is reinvented for the 21st century with a woman in the title role, a dynamic and diverse cast and a drummer scoring the show live. With this most canonical of all Ghost stories, we are set to face the big questions of Life and Death under the vast openness of the Prairie sky.
