It’s been a half a century since Hamlet was produced at the Taper and next season Tony Award® nominated visionary, Robert O’Hara, who directed the landmark box office hit Slave Play, returns to stage one of the most famous tales ever told.

“So…once more… tell me about this Ghost.” That’s how the legendary story begins. But ghosts are tricky things. Especially in a world of madness, murder, and mayhem. A rich entitled Prince goes on a ferocious rampage that will lead to a massacre in the living room. Is he a tragic hero as we’ve often been told? Or a royal blooded serial killer? In this new adaptation we will step into a Shakespearian noir through a forensic investigation of the ultimate crimes of passion.

I’m terribly excited to be closing out Snehal Desai’s first season with Hamlet. I’m diving deep into my love of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Salvador Dali, and Perry Mason to tell this story.  I like my Shakespeare tragedies lean, brisk, and intense. There will be blood.

—Robert O’Hara, Director
