Following last season’s “magnificent” (Santa Barbara News-Press) and “triumphant” (CASA Magazine) Globe Theatre appearance, a handful of players return in a raw, thrillingly elemental production of Hamlet. Masterfully probing all corners of the psyche – with depictions of sexual obsession and political intrigue, philosophical reflection and violent actions, tragic depth and wild humor – this colossus of the English language is the fullest expression of Shakespeare’s genius. Learning of the king his father’s death, Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his “foul and most unnatural murder.”
