Written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Gertrude, Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness - from overwhelming grief to seething rage - and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption. Hamlet
will be performed by a cast whose performances will be entirely determined by the audience itself! Each member of the company can play a number of characters. Only moments before the beginning of the play will the audience determine which actor plays which part. The only props used in performance will again depend on what objects the audience have brought along with them.Author Shakespeare. Company The Factory. Director Tim Carroll.
