Infused with the Buddhist ideas of love and death and the spirit of Zen, Company East's 75-minute HAMLET faithfully follows Shakespeare's original plot. Hamlet is away at University when he learns that his father has suddenly died, and his mother has married his Uncle Claudius. Hamlet becomes obsessed with the idea that his uncle murdered his father and that his mother has been disloyal, and that he must avenge his father's death.
The production incorporates six video projectors that display both words and images, making the experience truly multicultural and accessible for Japanese and English speaking audiences alike.
