Hamlet 1603: The First Quarto -- One of Shakespeare's first published versions of the quintessential revenge play, Hamlet 1603. Hamlet returns from University to discover that his father is dead and his uncle has married his mother. Visited by the ghost of his father, Hamlet schemes to wrest the truth from his murderous uncle and avenge his father's death. Amid his feigned madness and very real indecision, his actions have tragic results.

Priscilla – New World Theatre's newly commissioned modern adaptation, Priscilla takes Shakespeare's most famous work and puts its premise of indecision leading to destruction into a more contemporary context –and with a woman as the protagonist. Will Priscilla choose a life of love and security or will she lose herself amid the unraveling revelations surrounding her mother's suspicious death?
