By William Shakespeare
Directed by Maeli Goren
Yale School of Drama

Shakespeare is every character in this play, but he is Hamlet most of all. Because unlike those who anesthetize, destroy, or delude themselves, or those who accept the inevitability of death and move on without question, Hamlet relentlessly chases after a why, a bit of cosmic justice in the fact that some people die while others are left behind. What are we still here for, and how are we meant to keep living?  

A genderqueered take on the play that explores power, privilege, and rebellion.
