Shakespeare’s Greatest and Most Famous Tragedy

Upon learning of the king his father’s death, Hamlet returns home to find his uncle has married his mother and taken the Danish throne.

Haunted by his murdered father’s cry for revenge, Hamlet learns that certainty and a clear course of action are hard to come by when spies and schemers surround him.

Laurence Olivier Award-nominated and Jeff Award-winning director David H. Bell returns to direct Shakespeare’s greatest and most famous tragedy.
