Synopsis

In this filmed Broadway version of Shakespeare's play, in which the actors perform without period sets or costumes, young Hamlet is distraught after the death of his father, the king of Denmark. Hamlet is suspicious that the new king, his uncle, orchestrated his father's death in order to claim the throne and the queen's hand. Hamlet embarks on a quest for vengeance, and only tragic consequences follow -- including the death of his mother, Gertrude.
