Excellent rendition of one of Shakespeare's finest in an intimate venue. I have seen a number of Butterfield 8 performances now and they never fail to impress. Catch the next one if you can!

More Information



Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by John Butterfield

Adapted for Butterfield 8 by Maureen-Theresa Williams

“Angels and ministers of grace, defend us”

In England, Queen Victoria continues her reign. Around the world, the harnessing of steam power for the benefit of mankind has allowed the speculations of visionaries such as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells to become reality. In Denmark, the King has died under mysterious circumstances, and his Queen has been remarried— to the late King’s brother. The Prince, Hamlet, suspects his uncle had a hand in his father’s death, but what can he do to prove it— and after proving it, revenge it? Shakespeare’s classic tragedy comes to life in the Steampunk style.
