Shakespeare’s Hamlet takes stage at Post

The theatre troupe that brought you A Midsummer’s Night Dream brings the Bard to the Beach with its production of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Hamlet, for one performance only at the Tybee Post Theater.

In Savannah Shakes’ updated take on Hamlet, set in the 1950s against the birth of the Beat Generation, Prince Hamlet returns home from school to find his father dead and his mother married to his uncle, whom he despises. It isn’t until he witnesses his father’s ghost, who charges that he was murdered by his younger broth
er, Hamlet’s uncle, that Hamlet becomes convinced that something is rotten in the state of Denmark and vows to revenge his father’s untimely death.

For centuries, audiences have seen themselves in the brilliant, troubled prince at the center of this ghost story, comedy, seven-murder revenge thriller, and philosopher’s gold mine.
