Murder, grief, love, betrayal, humor, madness, and revenge–this renowned story of mystery and intrigue has it all! Prince Hamlet, haunted by his father’s suspicious death and his mother’s hasty marriage to his uncle, seeks truth and justice in a fallen world. In the process, he learns not only what it means to be a man, but what it means to be human.
Join us as we welcome back Robert Quinlan (director of AST’s acclaimed Richard III, 2012), whose stunning vision of Shakespeare’s most celebrated tragedy gives you a glimpse of the backstage drama of Denmark that will leave you breathless.
Presented at Reynolds Performance Hall, Conway. Opens June 20th.
