Event Description

Will you join us to read and dissect Hamlet? That is the question.

The young prince Hamlet returns home to Denmark to attend his father's funeral, but find out his mother has already remarried his Uncle Claudius. When his father's ghost visits him and declares that he was murdered, Hamlet sets out to expose the truth by feigning madness. Shakespeare's tragedy follows Hamlet as he struggles with decisions regarding avenging his father's death.

Our aim is to have attendees engage with this great play in whatever capacity they choose. You can come to read or just to listen. There will be no pressure, no judgment, no grades — just the chance to commune together over a great work of literature and provide some deep thought and a little laughter in our present moment.
