Hamlet at The Free Library of Philadelphia Free Library of Philadelphia
1901 Vine St., Philadelphia 19103

Enjoy a 90-minute adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, presented by The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre and directed by our Artistic/Executive Director, Carmen Khan. This is a fresh and muscular production with a new sound score and an exciting visual palette, that reveals the journey of the most famous character in drama.

Hamlet is the most studied, most performed and most adapted of Shakespeare’s plays by far, possibly of any play ever. There are many explanations for the centuries of popularity, but in the end it comes down to the fact that Shakespeare managed to somehow pack all the ambiguity, complexity and messiness of real life into a story, without losing the narrative structure and focus a story requires. The play deals in grand, universal themes: coping with loss and betrayal, the need to know the truth, the complexity of human desire, the parent-child relationship — and it examines those themes in human sized form. Hosted in partnership with The Free Library of Philadelphia, the production will be followed by a post-performance discussion about why Hamlet matters and why we should continue to share the play with younger generations.

The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre designed this 90-minute professional production of Hamlet to tour schools, universities, and community centers. Following a successful school tour run, The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre is excited to present Hamlet for one night only at The Free Library of Philadelphia.
