This contemporary production of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet uses the classic text to explore the cycles of abuse at play within the story and how they manifest supernaturally. By employing immersive staging and utilizing their outdoor space, the event takes the audience on a journey through the haunted halls of the decadent Danish court, examining the trials and tribulations of those who dwell there. From the traumatic effects of a murder that destroys a country to the behavior of the Prince himself, this play explores the effects of madness on both an intimate and political level.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is playwright Tom Stoppard’s philosophical-comedic reaction piece to one of Shakespeare’s greatest works. Through the eyes of two of Hamlet’s minor characters, audiences see the story from another angle as the politically powerful step on those beneath them. Contemporary staging gets up close and personal, inviting the audience to laugh and ponder with their heroes as they explore identity, truth, and what might really be rotten in the state of Denmark.
