The Complete Works of Shakespeare: Hamlet
Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center are in the midst of presenting staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works over five years. The 30th in the series will be Hamlet.
One of the best known, most performed, most quoted plays in the English language, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy tells the tale of Hamlet, prince of Denmark, and his efforts to avenge his father’s murder. Although Hamlet is a play of revenge, its greatness lies in the unique and thoughtful nature of the prince, who does not so much pursue his revenge as he is swept to it through the events of the play. His preoccupation with the nature and consequences of man’s actions has led critics to call him “the first modern man.”
Performances will take place in Hamon Hall. Student tickets for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare are now free to students with valid IDs. Student tickets will be available at the door only. Only two tickets per student ID.
