Shakespeare's Globe Hamlet

Performance Dates

Folger Theatre presents a limited engagement of Shakespeare’s Globe touring production of HAMLET

2-Year Globe-To-Globe Tour makes its only U.S. East Coast Stop at the Folger on July 25 & 26

Widely considered to be Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Hamlet encompasses political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor. Hamlet—after learning of the death of his father, the king of Denmark—comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the throne. At night, the ghost of the former king demands that Hamlet avenge his “foul and most unnatural murder.”
