Presented by Dare Arts & Theatre of Dare
Performed by the Mended Wing Theatre Company
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark--Hamlet is in mourning for his father, but everyone else seems to have moved on already, especially his mother Gertrude and his uncle Claudius, who married suspiciously soon after his father's death. When Hamlet learns his father was murdered, all of Denmark is thrown upside down, as Hamlet winds his trap around the villain. Are his motives pure? Will he succeed? Who killed the old king?
In Mended Wing's 75-minute, 4-actor adaptation, directed by Beth Fletcher, and starring Taigé Lauren, Matt Foley, Nic Brown, and Emmet Temple, Shakespeare's iconic tale of murder, madness, and vengeance comes to thrilling new life.
Mended Wing Theatre Co. was founded on the belief that Shakespeare is for everyone, not just those who are lucky enough to live near a cultural hub, and that with a small cast and a lot of energy we could make it not only understandable to students, but thrilling and fun as well!
