Treachery. Madness. Murder. Shakespeare's masterwork Hamlet comes to the Old Depot Stage! Something is rotten in Denmark and a king is dead. His brothe, Claudius has snatched the throne and the widowed queen. Life goes on - for everyone but Hamlet. The prince, fixated on his uncle as the murderer, is charged by his father's ghost to avenge the wrong. Disconnected from the foul world around him, Hamlet strains under the weight of his task. SBCT's production of Shakespeare's disturbing and psychologically rich masterpiece digs into the enigma of a maniac's mind.
