Ravi Jain's remixed, reimagined, and bilingual Prince Hamlet features a cross-cultural, gender-bent cast, challenging conventional ideas of who gets to tell this story. Struggling with the death of his royal father and his mother's hasty re-marriage to his uncle — and murderer of the king — Hamlet undertakes the harrowing task of avenging his father's untimely death. Combining spoken word and American Sign Language, this groundbreaking production creates a fully integrated retelling for both hearing and Deaf audiences.
 

"This is no ordinary Hamlet ... remixed, reinvigorated avant bard for our times"
