This adaptation by South African playwright Robin Malan features just one actor, speaking the words of Shakespeare's most iconic character. Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark, who mourns the death of his father, the King. Further souring his mood is the knowledge that his uncle killed his father to get access to the throne -- and his mother.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre
The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre was founded as The Red Heel Theatre in 1989, initially focusing on classic works of English theatre. In 1993, Carmen Khan became the Artistic Director of Red Heel and in 1996 focused the company’s efforts on the works of Shakespeare, renaming it The Philadelphia Shakespeare Festival. Since that time, The Festival has produced over 30 plays, reached over 30,000 High School students and nearly 70,000 adult audience members. In 2008/9, we engaged in intensive planning with our board of directors and cultural and community leaders and decided to re-brand and rename the company to better reflect our programming. We now have several programs for adults and students including a lecture series featuring world-renowned Shakespeare Scholars, Shakespeare School Tour which also tours in schools, and a Classical Acting Academy providing early career actors with intense classical training culminating in a free summer Shakespeare play for the public
