Orlando Shakespeare Theater presents ‘Gertrude and Claudius’
February 20, 2019 - March 24, 2019
Serving as a prequel to Hamlet, Gertrude and Claudius brings a new point of view to the classic tale of guilt and revenge. The infamous couple serve as the villains in Shakespeare’s work, but are offered a new exposition in this tale of good intentions and family dysfunction. With ominous hints at the familiar story to come, Gertrude and Claudius is a play that shakes up what you thought you knew about Elsinore. Funding for the commission of Gertrude and Claudius generously provided by Rita and John Lowndes. By Mark St. Germain | An adaptation of John Updike’s novel.
Shows: Select dates – Feb 20-24; Feb 28; Mar 1; Mar 6; Mar 9-10; Mar 13; Mar 15-16; Mar 22-23
