Event Description:


by William Shakespeare

Directed by Christopher V. Edwards

Shakespeare’s classic tale of revenge comes to Gloucester Stage after two successful seasons of full-house student matinees. Responding to a need from Boston area schools to immerse students in classic literature, this performance has an adjusted schedule to impact over 2,000 middle and high school students. Hamlet’s story begins when he meets his father’s ghost, revealing that his brother, Claudius, has murdered him and taken Hamlet’s mother, Gertrude, for his queen. Hamlet then begins his journey of revenge while struggling with self-doubt and facing challenges from all sides. Artistic Director of Actors’ Shakespeare Project Christopher V. Edwards makes his GSC directing debut with William Shakespeare’s Hamlet running October 25 through November 17 at Gloucester Stage. Public performances are limited to weekends with student matinees weekdays.
