Subject: Re: Q1 Hamlet
This is an old thread, but I recall that when I asked about performances
of Q1 Hamlet last summer, there was some interest. Well, if anyone is
going to London for the holidays (or the semester break) go see the
production of Q1 Hamlet being staged by the Red Shift Theatre Company.
As stated in their press release,
"Red Shift celebrates 18 years of touring the UK with a vital,
groundbreaking production of Shakespeare's Hamlet based on the first
quarto version, collected from the actors who originally performed it.
'Hamlet': first cut is as close as we can get to the popular play seen
on the Jacobean stage."
