Hamlet, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Presented in English   
June 7 - October 14, 2016

Do you believe in ghosts? Devastated by his father’s death and disgusted by his mother’s hasty marriage to his hated uncle, Denmark’s Prince Hamlet has hit the rock bottom of despair. Now the ghost of his father appears, claiming the uncle murdered him—and the spectral accusation torments Hamlet’s troubled mind, driving him to avenge a crime that may or may not be a product of his own imagining. Grand in scope, rich in language, this classic story of haunting, both literal and metaphorical, ranks among Shakespeare’s masterpieces.
