Hamlet is one of the most powerful and influential tragedies in the English language. Gamut Theatre's interpretation focuses on an "almost-but-not-quite post-pandemic world". In a world where we've all been irrevocably changed by a global pandemic, Hamlet's grief hits differently. Could this rotten smell of Denmark be the same lingering stench seeping into our own backyard? The Tragedy of Hamlet will give this new world meaning for our audiences, whether it be time to grieve what has been lost, time to giggle at puns and dirty jokes, or time to commune with the outdoors and with other humans.
Come early with your own blankets or chairs to grab a spot on the lawn and enjoy Shakespeare under the stars!
