Gravedigger’s Tale at ASF

Gravedigger's Tale
October 14, 2016 - October 15, 2016

Special limited engagement!  An interactive retelling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet from the point of view of the Gravedigger, Gravedigger’s Tale comes to ASF from the Folger Theatre to celebrate the national tour of Shakespeare’s Folio on display at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts in October 2016. 

The story of Hamlet is told by the Gravedigger using Shakespeare's moving words and help from the audience. In Shakespeare's play Hamlet, the Gravedigger appears briefly in Act V to perform a comic exchange with a fellow gravedigger before speaking to Hamlet and presenting him with the jester Yorick’s skull. Our Gravedigger arrives with a trunk and a book and answers “questions” from the audience with pieces of text from Hamlet

Recommended ages 10 and up.
