Hamlet is one of Shakespeare's most challenging works for the director and actor.  The mercurial Hamlet defies definition as he leaps from melancholy to madness , feigned and real, to wonderful moments of theatrical wit all traveling inexorably towards the final showdown. 
Hamlet is a too human tale of love, loss, passion and redemption.  We mourn the loss  of lost opportunity for love and happiness and that is where much of the heart of this tragedy lies.
The cast and crew of this Hamlet are passionate about story telling without gimmicks, finding truth through the exploration of text and we hope today's performance will give you much to ponder on.
