HAMLET

Regarded as one of Shakespeare’s finest works, Hamlet continues resonating with modern audiences some 400 years after it was originally produced. Set against a backdrop of murder, scandal, and the supernatural, Hamlet contains more than a few of Shakespeare’s most famous passages concerning “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.” The prominent themes of the play focus on the complexity of action vs. inaction, the mystery surrounding death, and the uncertainty inherent in existence itself.

Having recently returned to Denmark for the funeral of his father (and hasty marriage of his mother to his uncle), Hamlet experiences visions from the afterlife that indict his uncle in the murder of his father. Can this ghostly apparition be trusted—or is it really a misleading fiend? Can Hamlet seek revenge for this murder without compromising his own morality? And, conversely, how could he not?
