Set in Denmark, the play adaptation depicts Prince Hamlet and his revenge against his uncle, Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father in order to seize his throne and marry Hamlet's mother. Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play and is considered among the most powerful and influential works of world literature, with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others” Now in a new version, specifically adapted for Elgin Fringe Festival, this Epic tale is shortened down to just 40 minutes. Still containing the intrigue, drama, and climactic finale that has made Hamlet the second most filmed story in history, this classic has been adapted to turn a long and broad drama into a small play of family loyalty and betrayal.
