One of William Shakespeare’s most widely performed and admired plays, Hamlet is a dramatic delve into the realities of revenge, broken trust, and the dangers of usurpation. This production casts three separate female actors to perform the titular character, each marking the progression of Hamlet’s disturbed mind as it wrestles with avenging his father’s murder.  Set in the early 1960s, during a period when conventions were increasingly challenged by a youth culture demanding answers and change, Hamlet, the iconic troubled youth, discovers who he can trust, what the truth is, and how he must act upon that terrible reality.
