Hamlet

September 23 - October 2, 2022

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Nikhil Pai

Revenge, obsession, and murder all collide in one of William Shakespeare’s most powerful and influential works. A bereaved Prince Hamlet resolves to investigate the sudden death of his father, only to find himself caught in an ever-expanding web of deception, espionage, and corruption. As he descends into the darkness, he must come to terms with the fickleness of morality, the fragility of the mind, and the inevitable consequences of taking action.
