Event Information

By Mamduh Adwan

Translated by Margaret Litvin

Adapted & directed by PMA assistant professor Rebekah Maggor 

In this biting political satire of Shakespeare's tragedy by renowned Syrian poet and playwright Mamduh Adwan, Hamlet is a narcissistic prince, blissfully unaware of his people's bleak reality. Distracted by drink and theatre rehearsals, Hamlet fails to notice the rise of a brutal plutocratic dictatorship. 

The production brings together text, original music, and movement to explore past and present events in Syria, while at the same time pushing the boundaries of our contemporary political conversation in the U.S. 

Cosponsored by the Society for the Humanities, Cornell Council for the Arts, Clarke Initiative for Law and Development in the Middle East and North Africa, Near Eastern Studies, Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, and Carl Becker House.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students, seniors, and Cornell faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
