Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell's Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare's masterpiece of crisis and identity. In it, a traditional way of life is being threatened by an evolving world, the land is being threatened by encroaching foreign interests, and a young man finds himself uprooted and torn between opposing customs, values and codes. Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern western elements, this is a bold re-imagining of most renowned play in any language. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=224410 Sheen Center for Thought & Culture Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
