Hamlet, Prince of Grief had its US premier at the Under The Radar in New York City Public Theater when it received a New York Times Review.  Using household objects and children’s toys to play out a domestic and political history of betrayal and death, Shakespeare’s tragic hero comes to terms with his violent fate through an obsessive retelling of the moments that preceded the tragedy.
