Utilizing just two actors, the play contains many of the Bard’s most famous lines and speeches while retaining his saga’s pathos, poetry, and passion. Starring Kayla Carter and Shane Kenyon; sound design by George Zahora; and produced by Peter Garino.
The Shakespeare Project of Chicago has presented 50-Minute Hamlet to numerous Chicago audiences since its premier in 2002, and it has won the acclaim of adults, students, and teachers alike each time.
