HAMLET by William Shakespeare
In repertory with
SAINT JOAN by George Bernard Shaw
He is a dark, enigmatic prince obsessed with seeking revenge for his father’s death. She is a steadfast rebel who challenged the powers of the church to restore France to greatness. Iconic figures from two great dramatic classics—Hamlet and Saint Joan—are brought vividly to life in two riveting, stripped-down stagings in rotating repertory by four actors from the acclaimed theater company, Bedlam.
After experiencing Hamlet at ArtsEmerson in Boston, Bedlam's last stop before arriving at The Broad Stage, audiences heaped praise on Bedlam's incredible staging.
Distinctive onstage seating will be available for this special engagement. In each production, some audience members will be seated on risers on the stage for two of the three acts. For the other act, these audience members will be in the rear of the orchestra. Learn more about onstage seating here.

Theatre at The Broad Stage made possible in part by a generous gift from Bill and Laurie Benenson and Susan Stockel.
