Hamlet

BUY TICKETS

Folger Theatre is the first American stop for Hamlet presented by London-based Shakespeare’s Globe, marking the company’s Washington, DC debut. Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe, and Globe regular Bill Buckhurst will co-direct this raw, thrillingly elemental production. The Daily Telegraph calls the production—with a cast of eight actors and a running time of only two-and-a-half hours—a “stripped-down Hamlet that is fast, fresh, and lucid.”
