Who would think to set Hamlet in the Depression? The Harborside Shakespeare Company (HSC) – that’s who. Known for atypical settings for Shakespeare’s plays, the Harborside Shakespeare Company is setting their production of Hamlet in a 1930s dustbowl. Taking it another interesting step is the soundtrack that features the music of Mumford & Sons, Robert Plant, Patti Smith, and others.
HSC will perform Hamlet throughout Maine’s Hancock County with the following performance schedule:
- July 25 & 26, 2014 at the Neighborhood House in Northeast Harbor, ME
- August 1, 2014 at Schoodic Arts for All in Winter Harbor, ME
- August 9 & 10, 2014 at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, ME
