MCT is proud to present Tom Stoppard’s The Fifteen Minute Hamlet on September 28th at Crossroads Farm as part of Malverne’s Fall Fest.
This comedy adaptation of Shakespeare’s longest, and arguably greatest, play, condenses the famed story of the tragic Prince of Denmark into a mere 15 minutes. Using extensive doubling, some savvy editing (by Mr. Stoppard), and lots of movement, The Fifteen Minute Hamlet will make you wonder why it took so long to read in high school.
Performances at 12:00pm and 3:30pm.
There is no admission fee for this production, but donations (tax deductible) to the company are always welcome.
