Bring a blanket and enjoy an outdoor performance of a beloved favorite. This year the SF Shakespeare Festival celebrates 35 years of free and accessible Shakespeare performances and presents Hamlet for the first time. Set in Denmark in 1559, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet is called to wreak upon his uncle, Claudius, by the ghost of Hamlet's father, King Hamlet. Claudius had murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying Gertrude, his deceased brother's widow.
