Adaptations (Shakespeare)


Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Embodied here as a drama of what transpires in two worlds—an outer one of external events and an inner one of the mind—the action of the play centers on the second area, and the remarkably complex, exciting dialogue taking place within Hamlet's fertile brain. The play then happens through Hamlet's eyes and inside his mind, with subtle flashbacks and transpositions to clarify and interpret his present actions. The result is a theatrically rich and emotionally vivid experience, which illuminates and enhances the greatness of the play, while finding new levels of meaning and pertinence within it.
Conceived by the renowned director of the Dallas (Texas) Theater Center, and successfully presented there under his direction, this imaginatively restructured version of Shakespeare's immortal play focuses the action in and through the mind of the central character, and employs three Hamlets to elucidate and define his fragmented, yet fascinating, personality. "HAMLET ESP is not a distortion of Hamlet, but an echo that reverberates in the audience long after the curtain has fallen." —Christian Science Monitor. "It serves up all the tragedy, pathos, intrigue, humor and emotional impact of the original in a contemporary, but not gimmicky package." —Dallas Morning News. "It's boldness, logic of interpretation, consummate theatricality and insightfulness will surely qualify the staging as unforgettable in the years to come." —San Antonio News.
