Hamlet opens with the ghost of a past Denmark king, King Hamlet, telling his son Prince Hamlet that the king was murdered. That murderer was none other than King Hamlet's brother, Claudius, who has inherited the throne with King's murder.  What follows is Prince Hamlet's investigation and revenge against Claudius as well as plenty of madness and plots on many people's lives.

Daniel R. Hill directed this Shakespearean tale.
