Event Notes

× By Lee Blessing

FORTINBRAS is a comic interplay of wry literary criticism and contemporary wit which takes up where William Shakespeare’s Hamlet left off. Young Fortinbras enters during the last scene of Hamlet only to order the bodies of the royal family shuffled off while he devises the best possible media blitz to legitimize his ascension to the throne of Denmark. Where we suffered and wailed at the consequences of Shakespeare’s tragedy, we can laugh along with Blessing at what follows in its wake... Shakespeare himself would have loved it.

9/20 - 9/21/24
