Bard on the Beach presents Hamlet


Directed by Kim Collier • BMO Mainstage

A ruler's ghost cries out for revenge and a towering tragedy is set in motion. Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is confronted by betrayal and murder. On the verge of giving up all hope, he's still driven by an insatiable quest for truth. His struggle for answers ultimately spares no one, triggering a shocking chain of events.

The production unfolds in a 21st century world of powerful, privileged leaders and so we see our own times through the lens of Hamlet's brilliant but anguished mind. The iconic story is also an ageless reminder of the terrible damage done to any culture by those who seek power at the expense of their humanity.
