by William Shakespeare
directed by Lisa Portes
A crumbling superpower is seized by Claudius, a new leader with a familiar face. His stepson Hamlet uncovers a secret that pits 21st century youth against their politically depraved elders. In this Hamlet, betrayal runs rampant, trust means nothing, and, although a camera’s eye catches the state’s every action, no one is truly safe.
