Hamlet The Tragedy of The Prince of Denmark

The Fern Shakespeare Company is proud to present, as part of The Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare Festival, William Shakespeare’s most famous play: Hamlet, The Tragedy of The Prince of Denmark. 

The secret midnight utterings of a Kingly Ghost will set events in motion that seal the tragic fate of Denmark’s royal family. Hamlet grapples with his mind and heart as he tries to make sense of it all and answer the most famous question in history. 

In The Fern’s Season of Pursuit, Hamlet is driven to pursue the truth and to avenge a crime that may or may not be a product of his own imagining. 

Grand in scope, intimate in performance, rich in language, this classic story of a haunting, both literal and metaphorical, illustrates why Hamlet is truly ranked among Shakespeare’s masterpieces.
