“To be, or not to be, that is the question.” This performance is the first production of Hamlet in The Acting Company’s forty-year history. The play dramatizes Prince Hamlet’s quest for revenge for his father’s murder, setting him on a journey that will force him to face his personal mortality. It vividly portrays overwhelming grief and rage while exploring themes of danger, revenge and moral corruption. Hamlet is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature, one of Shakespeare’s most popular works during his lifetime, and still ranks among his most-performed. Many believe that Hamlet represents the best of his work, and is certainly one of his most well-known and aft-quoted plays.
