About This Show

New York’s acclaimed Bedlam Theater Company brings two great works in repertory to the Olney Theatre Center stage!

Considered by many to be Shaw’s greatest play, Saint Joan played a major role in Shaw being awarded the 1925 Nobel Prize. Joan of Arc was canonized by the Catholic Church in 1920 — over four centuries after her death. Shaw’s great play opened just three years later!

Prince Hamlet is depressed. Having been summoned home to Denmark to attend his father’s funeral, he is shocked to find his mother already remarried — to his father’s brother, Claudius. Worse still, Claudius has had himself crowned King despite the fact that Hamlet is heir to the throne. No wonder Hamlet suspects foul play. Bedlam brings their unique performance style to Shakespeare’s greatest play — arguably the greatest play in the English language.
