Enjoy ‘Hamlet’ at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents “Hamlet” by William Shakespeare, directed by Barry Edelstein, playing through Sept. 10 in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre.

Revenge thriller, ghost story, psychological drama, political epic, family saga. Packed with unforgettable characters, theatrical masterstrokes, and world-famous lines, “Hamlet” is one of the greatest plays ever written.

The Prince of Denmark comes home from college to find his father dead, his mother remarried to his uncle, and a spine-chilling apparition roaming the palace grounds.

Barry Edelstein returns to the outdoor stage, with a cast featuring some of the nation’s finest classical actors, to bring Shakespeare’s exhilarating tragedy to life under the San Diego stars.

In addition, enjoy the special Shakespeare in the Garden free presentations on Aug. 15 to 19 at 7 p.m. each day. These informal presentations will be held in the Craig Noel Garden to enhance the theater experience.

The Old Globe is located in San Diego’s Balboa Park at 1363 Old Globe Way. Call (619) 234-5623 or visit theoldglobe.org.
