“Vengeance will have its due, and from now on our thoughts be bloody!”
Black Henna Productions’ free Shakespeare in the Parks tour performs 90-minute
versions of the Bard’s plays using the parks’ landscape as its setting. The focus is accessibility to Shakespeare to all.
Shakespeare’s Hamlet was based on the Scandinavian legend of Prince Amleth, but set in the mid-1500s. Black Henna Productions and Theatre Beyond Broadway are bringing the Melancholy Dane back to his roots by setting their adaptation of Hamlet in the 10th century royal longhouse of the ruling Viking clan of Denmark.
