Hamlet

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Barry Edelstein

Revenge thriller, ghost story, psychological drama, political epic, family saga. Packed with unforgettable characters, theatrical masterstrokes, and world-famous lines, Hamlet is one of the greatest plays ever written. The Prince of Denmark comes home from college to find his father dead, his mother remarried to his uncle, and a spine-chilling apparition roaming the palace grounds. Barry Edelstein returns to the outdoor stage, with a cast featuring some of the nation's finest classical actors, to bring Shakespeare's exhilarating tragedy to life under the San Diego stars.
