PCPA presents Hamlet
by William Shakespeare
Hamlet, son of the king of Denmark, is summoned home from university to see his father buried, and his mother married -- to his uncle. When his father's ghost appears and reveals he was murdered by that very uncle, Hamlet teeters on the edge of madness and becomes a player in a drama of his own invention, a play to purge what's rotten in Denmark and catch the conscience of the new king. Caught in a vortex of treachery and deceit, actions and inactions will be his nation, his family and friends, his love, and his own princely soul. Come experience for yourself, perhaps the greatest English language play ever written - Shakespeare's sublime story of revenge and realization.
