Prince Hamlet has returned from school in Wittenberg, only to discover his father dead, his mother newly married, and his uncle the benefactor of the tragic spoils. The ghost of Hamlet’s father haunts Elsinore Castle and wants revenge for his “foul and most unnatural murder”. Shakespeare's most celebrated work of rhetoric, philosophy, and introspection, Hamlet follows the young Prince of Denmark as he struggles with the consequences of his actions and inactions, and the universal questions that we all face with him.
