Topics in Drama: Performing Hamlet

This class will investigate William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet through discussion and performance. Students will explore and rehearse an adaptation of the play to understand Shakespearean characters, narrative, and language, and to consider the play’s resonance in the current moment. The class will culminate in workshop performances at the LCA during reading period. Students must be able to commit to group rehearsals outside of the official class time, working with a student assistant director and a faculty acting coach, in addition to faculty member Professor Wolff.
