Shakespeare's most iconic work, Hamlet explodes with big ideas and is the ultimate story of loyalty, love, betrayal, murder and madness.
In the Kingdom of Denmark, Hamlet's father is dead and Denmark has crowned a new king. Consumed by grief, Hamlet struggles to exact revenge upon his uncle, Claudius, who has murdered his own brother and seized the throne. Claudius has also married his deceased brother's widow, and they urge Hamlet to marry his beloved Ophelia.
Hamlet must choose between passive acquiescence and the need for a vengeance which might lead to tragedy.
