Shakespeare at the Estate: “Hamlet”

July 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - July 29, 2017 @ 10:00 pm

July 19-23 & 25-29: 7PM
Outdoors on the grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate
1048 Washington St.

A skull, a poisoned sword, a villainous uncle/king, a funeral (or a wedding?), a devoted friend, a drowned girl, and – “To be or not to be,” of course. And when a ghost appears, our iconic hero Hamlet is faced with a dreadful quandary in Shakespeare’s most famous play of love, loss and revenge.

This contemporary, opulent production will be ‘revved up,’ emphasizing the fusion of Shakespeare’s language and REV’s dynamic physicality, reflecting the intense emotional life of the play. Another of REV’s trademarks is the active involvement of the audiences in our outdoor productions (just as it was in Elizabethan playhouses) as witnesses to and participants in the events, giving the play’s action great immediacy and excitement.

Hamlet will have a cast of 10 actors, some playing more than one role in the tradition of touring productions in the Elizabethan age. This version of Hamlet will be two hours in length.

Tickets: $25 Adults; $20 Seniors; $15 Students (12 and older)
Free for kids under 12

A REV Theatre Production, in association with the
Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities
