Aquila’s productions of Shakespeare have been critically acclaimed by The New
Yorker as “beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” The New York Times says that Aquila “makes Shakespeare perfectly comprehensible” and hails the company as “an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.” Directed by Desiree Sanchez, Aquila’s Hamlet will seek to shed new light on this tragic story. The production will use Sanchez’s innovative use of movement, design, sound, and superb acting to vividly explore the depths of rage, madness, love and death brought about by a culture of obsessive personal ambition. D.C. Metro said “Sanchez is wildly inventive, and the production choices made were carried out beautifully” and NY Theater Review says “her direction is polished and laser sharp. This presentation is the full length version with intermission. Appropriate for Grades 6-12.
