About

By Mamduh Adwan
Translated by Margaret Litvin
Adapted & Directed by Rebekah Maggor

In this biting political satire of Shakespeare's tragedy by renowned Syrian poet and playwright Mamduh Adwan, Hamlet is a narcissistic prince, blissfully unaware of his people's bleak reality. Distracted by drink and theatre rehearsals, Hamlet fails to notice the rise of a brutal plutocratic dictatorship.

The production, adapted and directed by Cornell Performing & Media Arts - PMA assistant professor Rebekah Maggor, brings together text, original music and movement to explore past and present events in Syria, while at the same time pushing the boundaries of our contemporary political conversation in the U.S.
