Hamlet Poster


Closed September 10, 2017

Shakespeare's revenge thriller comes to San Diego this summer.

Why See Hamlet?

Hamlet is part of the Old Glove Theatre season!

Barry Edelstein directs arguably, Shakespeare's most famous drama in the great outdoors at Lowell's Festival Theatre this summer. Part of the The Old Globe Theatre Festival season, the greatest tragic hero ever written is often the defining role of a stage actor's career, with each new incarnation being judged against a lineage of acting greats such as Lawrence Olivier, Richard Burton, and more recently, Benedict Cumberbatch at London's Barbican. With the cast to be confirmed for the staging, Bard lovers in San Diego are in for a thrilling treat during the balmy summer nights ahead.

In the Kingdom of Denmark, Prince Hamlet plans his revenge on the uncle who murdered his father, and now sits on the throne instead of him. After a period of self-imposed exile, the dispossessed prince makes his return from the shadows, consumed by grief and a lust for revenge against the man who betrayed him.
