Lyceum Series: Actors From The London Stage – Hamlet

March 4, 2025 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Madness, revenge, and the supernatural: Hamlet remains one of the most well-known of all Shakespeare plays, and for good reason. This powerful tale of vengeance and insanity still retains the power to thrill audiences everywhere. Blending tension, pathos, and poetry, Hamlet remains as exciting and relevant to modern audiences as ever.

The ghost of the King of Denmark tells his son Hamlet to avenge his murder by killing the new king, Hamlet’s uncle. Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death, and seeks revenge. His uncle, fearing for his life, also devises plots to kill Hamlet. The tension rises, culminating in a fateful duel between Hamlet and Laertes, a duel whose outcome leads to tragedy for all.

Actors From The London Stage celebrates its 50th anniversary with a triumphant return to one of Shakespeare’s most iconic titles. Each member of this self-directed ensemble portrays multiple roles while favoring minimal props and costumes, creating a theatrical experience like no other.

This event is part of the Mississippi State University Lyceum Series for the 2024-2025 season. For more information, video previews, and ticket information, please visit lyceum.msstate.edu.
