Description

SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK 2017 - HAMLET

Shakespeare in the Park 2017 - Hamlet

Celebrating its 35th year, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival brings its performance of "Hamlet" to the beautiful Sequoia Campus in Downtown Redwood City for 3 weekends in August! Shakespeare in the Park will offer 3 evening shows on Saturdays and 3 late afternoon shows on Sundays, while providing an opportunity to see high quality, professional theater in the relaxing outdoor setting of Sequoia Campus, free of charge. Treat yourself to some Shakespeare this August, for a moment that is sure to please.

The play, about the questionable succession of King Claudius to the throne of Denmark over his nephew Prince Hamlet, speaks strongly about disenfranchisement, frustration, and the need for action during troubled times. Hamlet is torn between revenging his father’s murder and going along quietly with the new regime, including his mother Queen Gertrude. Finding an ally in the audience, he shares his inner turmoil in a series of soliloquies which have become familiar all over the world – from “Oh, what a rogue and peasant slave am I” to “To be or not to be” to “How all occasions do inform against me."

This event takes place on both Saturdays and Sundays in August:
Saturday, August 12, 19 & 26 • 7:30pm
Sunday, August 13, 20 & 27 • 4:00pm

Free Shakespeare in the Park began in 1983, with its debut production of The Tempest in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. It is now one of the major free Shakespeare programs in the nation. Free Shakespeare in the Park provides an opportunity for everyone to see high quality, professional theater at no cost.
