About This Show

Long Wharf Theatre concludes its 2003-2004 season with Shakespeare’s Hamlet, directed by Mladen Kiselov, former director of the Bulgarian National Theater.

Hamlet is a young university student who returns home to a world of brutality and betrayal. Director Mladen Kiselov approaches the play as a family drama, emphasizing the young man’s isolation and confusion in a world that is entirely different from the one he left behind and at odds with the values on which he focuses as a student of philosophy. Once Hamlet succumbs to the pressure to seek vengeance, a chain of events ensues that results in terrible tragedy.
