About the play: HAMLET TODAY, 2017
Modern European celebrity royals dealing with the intense scrutiny of a family scandal. Living under the microscope. A little bit Buckingham palace, a little bit House of Oldenberg, a little bit Hello magazine, even a little bit Riverdale (the TV show) … But dark.
Two families each lose their patriarch – one royal, one common – how do they handle it? And what does the clamouring public want?
We see the powerful grief of the mob – think Princess Diana—and we see a young prince caught in the eye of the storm – a man who would be private but can't be.
Fast-paced and very physical. Living, athletic language telling a high-stakes story!
Oh yeah, and it's about revenge.
The play features the acting and backstage work of the students of the Grenfell Theatre department.
Dates: Nov. 22 - 25 at 8 p.m.
Location: Grenfell Theatre, Fine Arts Building.
Tickets are available online.
