Hamlet returns home from drama school in America, after the cold-blooded assassination of her father by her uncle, who has married Hamlet’s mother. After seeing her father’s ghost, Hamlet decides to feign insanity, in order to get to the truth.
Featuring Turkish diva Fatma Girik in the lead role, the extraordinary Metin Erksan creatively reimagines Shakespeare’s beloved tragedy in a modern setting. Cleverly twisting the original text’s Oedipal resolution, Erksan orchestrates a witty, moving, and compellingly explosive narrative.
