Gertrude and Claudius
February 20 – March 23, 2019 | Margeson Theater
By Mark St. Germain | An adaptation of John Updike’s novel
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. This play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
