February 25 - March 20, 2022

Previews Feb. 23 & 24, 2022

Hamlet, thy name is Woman. The mysterious death of a king is followed by his brother's unconventional ascension to the throne and the Queen's bed casts young Hamlet, usurped heir to the crown, in the role of reluctant avenger. Incest and intrigue, murder and madness, triumph and treachery all combine to paint one of the most complex and compelling portraits in all of English literature. Featuring Sara Clark as the titular role of Hamlet like you’ve never seen her before.

Run Time: 2 hours plus a 15 minute intermission

Content Advisory: Contains adult situations and acts of violence. Contact the Box Office for additional details.
