The Kingdom of Denmark against Hamlet: A Shakespeare Mock Trial

October 6 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Our premise is that after King Claudius orders Hamlet sent to England for his killing of Polonius, a great storm at sea arises that prevents Hamlet and his escorts Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern from taking ship. In the meantime, Laertes returns from France, learns of his father’s death, and raises a rebellion against Claudius. Always the consummate politician, Claudius orders Hamlet seized and put on trial, hoping to assuage Laertes.
