a 90-minute adaptation of William Shakespeare’s work adapted by Tal Aviezer
Red Monkey Theater Group and M&M Performing Arts Company present Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy in a fast-paced, 90-minute adaptation presented with intimate staging. The energetic, scaled-down production aims to remove as many barriers as possible between the Bard’s words and the audience. One of the reasons we come to the theater is to recognize ourselves, and Hamlet is an enduring character because people from all walks of life, of all ages and nationalities, have recognized their essential humanity in him. Shakespeare’s language is electrifying because he manages somehow to articulate thoughts that we all recognize as truth, but that we ourselves have never been able to express. We hope our production will convey that sense of emotional, intellectual, and spiritual homecoming to our audience.
