HAMLET – A Modern Topical Adaptation
This production of Hamlet is set to take place on 29th of December, from 6:00pm at CLT Aban Mahal, Dhakuria, Kolkata.
The production is aimed to mark off the 400 death anniversary of Shakespeare, and to bring the relevance of the Bard even today.
The lines are the Bard’s, while the setting is Kolkatan, to show the cultural relevance of Shakespeare – that the same lines can fit across cultures and time.
Performed by the youth – all aged between 17 and 24 – this production seeks to capture the young audience to appreciate the works of Shakespeare and come out of the academic cliche.
