Regular theater-goers will recall the impressive Henry V in 2014. This year Bell Theatre will be presenting Hamlet, directed by acclaimed Damien Ryan.

Damien Ryan: "Hamlet is one of the most complete experiences theatre can provide extraordinary poetry, intense passion, dazzling intelligence, terror, casual slaughter, friendship, humanity, great humour and great grief. Shakespeare casts his spell through the sheer scope and grandeur of this story - beginning with a dead man walking and ending with a stage littered with bodies."
