‘The time is out of joint, O cursed spite
That ever I was born to set it right!’ (Act 1, Scene 5)
A restless ghost demands revenge for his unjust murder. A king seizes the throne but his power is built on lies. A mother begs her raging child to cease tormenting her. A daughter faces heartbreak after a sudden loss.
Denmark is a prison for young Hamlet, heir to the Danish throne. Injustice flourishes at home and abroad and the world seems broken beyond repair. In these dangerously heightened times truth is a tragic burden and trust is hard to find. Will Hamlet triumph over fear and fury?
A talented ensemble of BA actors brings this most famous Shakespeare play to life giving a contemporary twist to an ancient story of revenge.
