WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tony nominee Arian Moayed (The Humans, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) offers a revelatory new reading of the "melancholy Dane." Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell's Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare's masterpiece of crisis and identity. In it, a traditional way of life is being threatened by an evolving world, the land is being threatened by encroaching foreign interests, and a young man finds himself uprooted and torn between opposing customs, values, and codes. Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern Western elements, this is a bold reimagining of most renowned play in any language. Drama Desk nominee and Waterwell co-founder Tom Ridgely directs.

Featuring Barzin Akhavan (Ghost, Player King, Priest), Amir Arison (Laertes), Maryam Atei (Player Queen, Lady), Brendan Averett (Captain, Sailor, Ambassador), Cary Donaldson (Fortinbras), Andrew Guilarte (Claudius), Abraham Makany (Marcellus, Guildenstern), Arian Moayed (Hamlet), Arash Mokhtar (Barnardo, Rosencrantz), Ajay Naidu (Polonius, Gravdigger), Sherie Rene Scott (Gertrude), Sathya Sridharan (Osric, Voltemand, Player), Micah Stock (Horatio) and Sheila Vand (Ophelia).
