Hamlet (matinee)

3:00 p.m.

The New School for Drama presents The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare, adapted and directed by Brad Raimondo, as part of Drama’s New Visions Directing Festival, October 4-12, October 18-26, and November 1-9. Five plays performed in repertory highlight the work of this year’s graduating directors and actors.

Prince Hamlet is adrift upon a sea of troubles: The King, his father, has been killed, his mother has married his uncle and that same uncle has seized the throne. Urged to vengeance by his father’s ghost, betrayed by his lover and spied upon by childhood friends, Hamlet struggles to regain control of his own destiny. And all the while the clouds of war gather on the horizon. This new streamlined adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy presents a young man wracked with grief, filled with rage and paralyzed by questions not only about the truth behind his father’s murder but about the very nature of life and death itself.
