The Hamlet Project

April  7–10, 2022


The play’s the thing in “The Hamlet Project,” an exploration of William Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy. Consumed with grief and determined to avenge their father’s apparent murder, Hamlet must choose between passive acquiescence and the need for a vengeance which might lead to devastating consequences. This powerful and lean adaptation uses multiple actors to illuminate Hamlet’s crisis of identity, and the perilous journey of madness, revenge and lost love.
