A bold, fresh production of Shakespeare's most iconic work, set in a generation, or two, away from our own. Welcome to the rotten state of Denmark where paranoia, intrigue, murder, love, lust, and even the dead are among us. Though this play is over 400 years old it's themes are everlasting. This production, rooted in Shakespeare’s beautiful text, blossoms into an interpretation, unlike anything you remember from your high school literature class. Parental guidance is recommended for audience members under 13 years of age. Performed on outdoor stages at Scranton's historic Iron Furnaces - built in 1848! This unique venue not only offers an exciting theatrical experience, but also the peace of mind that comes with mindful, socially distanced, outdoor entertainment. 2021 is the 10th Anniversary Season for The Scranton Shakespeare Festival. Celebrating 10 years of excellent, free, accessible theatre.
