HSF: Hamlet

Thursday, August 2, 2018

8:15 pm - 10:15 pm

Houston Shakespeare Festival (HSF) opens their 44th season with Shakespeare’s gripping masterpiece, “Hamlet.” A young prince is summoned back from his university studies to find his world turned inside out, with his mother re-married to his uncle and a ghost haunting the battlements. Unearthing the truth in a court of corruption takes a live-or-die kind of courage — does Hamlet have it?
