der Bestrafte Brudermord, or Hamlet Prince of Denmark
This rarely seen 1710 adaptation of Hamlet is a collaboration between the Hidden Room and Tiffany Stern of Oxford University, and was developed with the support of the American Shakespeare Center. Brudermord imagines the playing conditions of a puppet show in 1710 using a new English translation by Christine Schmidle, live music, fireworks, and onstage narration in this most unusual, and at times outrageously slapstick version of Hamlet. Running time: 75 mins
