OCT 13–NOV 4

After the tragic death of Hamlet’s father, the prince is forced to acknowledge the insidious corruption throughout his kingdom. But can injustices be overcome without destroying the powers that sustain them—including Hamlet’s own place at the heart of it?

Shakespeare’s enduring tragedy offers a powerful exploration of the roots of corruption, and the ways in which we become complicit in some of society’s deepest divides.
