Schauspiel von William Shakespeare in englischer Sprache
für die Oberstufe

Hamlet is revealed as a troubled young man who can trust no one, not even the ghost of his father. His attempts to find a moral or meaningful response to the murder of his father and his mother’s remarriage to the chief suspect end in tragedy.
The production focuses on Hamlet as performance, since most of the characters are performing a lie: old friends are spies, Claudius performs the role of a good stepfather, his mother that of a caring parent, Polonius of an honest broker, and even poor doomed Ophelia pretends she is alone with her one time lover. The greatest actor of all is Hamlet, who performs his own illusory madness. Nothing is what it seems and there are no fixed meanings, the world literally drives those who try to make sense of its riddles quite mad.
Director Paul Stebbings emphasizes and explores the theatricality, using life size puppets as well as highly theatrical ghosts and comedy interwoven with tragedy, as Shakespeare intended. This is not a play about inaction, but of a constant search for truth and justice. The production is complimented by Thomas Johnson’s powerful music, sung and played by the actors and interwoven with the text in the manner of a film score.

“All in all, the whole troupe under Paul Stebbings offered a treat of acting and direction, showing again why Shakespeare hasn’t lost his charm even in the 21st century.” (Luxemburger Wort)
