Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell’s Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare’s masterpiece of crisis and identity. In it, a traditional way of life is being threatened by an evolving world, the land is being threatened by encroaching foreign interests, and a young man finds himself uprooted and torn between opposing customs, values and codes. Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern western elements, this is a bold re-imagining of the most renowned play in any language. Starring Tony Nominees Arian Moayed (Hamlet), Micah Stock (Horatio), and Sherie Rene Scott (Gertrude). With original music by renowned Iranian musician, Mohsen Namjoo. Directed by Drama Desk Nominee Tom Ridgely.
