A humorous retelling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet with puppets, the text of Der Bestrafte Brudermord (Fratricide Revenged) dates to an anonymous 1710 German manuscript. In collaboration with Dr. Tiffany Stern, Professor of Early Modern Drama at Oxford University and the American Shakespeare Center, the Hidden Room theatre company will bring this unique adaptation to life.

Prior to the production, students from the Texas A&M Department of Performance Studies will perform a series of soliloquies and abbreviated scenes for audience members to enjoy.
