Shakespeare’s Play of the Month

Shakespeare’s play of the month is Hamlet. Set in Denmark, Hamlet is a play that explores conscience, madness and the nature of humanity. A young prince meets his father’s ghost in the middle of the night, who accuses his own brother – now married to his widow – of murdering him. The prince devises a scheme to test the truth of the ghost’s accusation, pretending to be insane while plotting revenge. However, his actions soon begin to wreak havoc on innocent and guilty alike.

Fun Fact: Hamlet has been translated into Klingon by Nick Nicholas and Andrew Strader of the ‘Klingon Shakespeare Restoration Project’, using the fictional language from the television series Star Trek. There are even Klingon versions that have been published!
