The Little Theatre’s Production of Hamlet by Jean Battlo
March 29 – April 13, 2019Buy Tickets
A sophisticated New York director with a successful Off Broadway season under her belt reluctantly travels to West Virginia to direct Hamlet under the auspices of a grant for “under served regions.” Only six people show up to audition and as a result this group perpetrates the most harrowing production of Shakespeare ever mounted. Some amazing costumes and funny mishaps add hilarity to sincere attempts to tailor Hamlet to this cast. The production marches forward in tune to very real and deep human spirits bent on accomplishment and the result provides a fine example of realizing the impossible dream.
