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.

The Zoo Story

Oct 28 - Nov 12, 2017

A park bench at the charming Pioneer Park in Mission Hills is the “Central Park” setting for San Diego Actors Theatre’s (SDAT) upcoming site-specific production of The Zoo Story by four time Pulitzer Prize-Winning Playwright, Edward Albee. Weekend performances run from October 28th through November 12th (Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m. matinees).

 

The Zoo Story is Produced and Directed by SDAT Founder/Artistic Director Patricia Elmore Costa, starring Byron LaDue as Jerry and Fred Harlow as Peter.

 

Written in 1958, The Zoo Story achieved instant acclaim for the “recognizable humanity of its characters” (Green, 2004) and for its themes of daily despair beneath the surface of middle-class life.  The play explores themes of isolation, loneliness, miscommunication and dehumanization in a commercial world.
