“To be or not to be, that is the question."

To close its summer season, The Old Globe stages "Hamlet" directed by Barry Edelstein.

Considered one of the greatest stories of all time, "Hamlet" is a revenge thriller, ghost story, psychological drama, political epic and family saga. It's an iconic piece packed with unforgettable characters, theatrical masterstrokes, and world-famous lines.

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. Edelstein returns to the outdoor stage with a cast of some of the nation’s finest classical actors.

"Hamlet" runs Aug. 6 through Sept. 22, 2017 on the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre stage. For additional details call (619) 234-5623.
