Our absolutely killer team is bringing you a Hamlet that’s bigger and better than ever – touring over 40 parks across Ottawa and beyond, this Torchlight is going to be our hottest one yet. There will be PUPPETS, there will be SWORDFIGHTS, and there might even be a SCARY GHOST !? All we’re missing now … is you!

You can find us in a park near you on our calendar below.

About the Show

Returning home to attend her father’s funeral, Hamlet discovers that another ceremony has already taken place: the marriage of her mother to her uncle. That’s right, her dead father’s brother. When Hamlet is visited by her father’s ghost demanding that she avenge his murder, Hamlet begins to wonder – is it she who has gone mad or everyone around her?

Join the Fools this summer as we delve into the depths of the human experience and have a few laughs along the way. Whether you’re a Shakespeare nerd or this is your first foray with the Bard since high school, our Foolish take on Hamlet has something for everyone.

Run Time: A cool 90-minutes
