Description

On the wings of soaring Elizabethan poetry, William Shakespeare confronts utterly contemporary questions of identity. We witness dramatic struggles between power and madness, parents and children, honesty and betrayal. At its core, the play explores our eternal battle with that unrelenting adversary " time. Professor Emeritus Robert Gardner will join our talented Gustie actors in the title role of what many critics call Shakespeare's greatest masterpiece.
