Description

Set a decade before the action of Shakespeare’s play, Michael Lesslie’s imagined prequel follows the teenage Hamlet, Ophelia and Laertes as they rage against the roles handed down by their parents. Secure in his position as the Danish heir, Hamlet sets his sights on romance and the pursuit of the newly arrived Ophelia. Her ambitious brother, Laertes, seizes the opportunity with the hope of enhancing his social standing.
