Synopsis


Hamlet is back from university; back home to a cold little island hanging on to the edge of Europe.


Everything has changed; his country is in crisis; his father is dead; and his uncle, a right-wing strongman, has seized power.


Amidst all this chaos his mother has committed the ultimate betrayal.


As paranoia and rumor swirl around the fractured state, the truth is becoming ever more distant and unknowable.


"To be or not to be, that is the question …"


But can Hamlet find any answers before his own doubts and fears eat him alive?


This modern promenade production will place Shakespeare's greatest tragedy within a contemporary context that will illuminate both the play and our own relationship with its timeless themes.
