Dr. Barbara Bono to speak on “Hamlet”
Saturday 18th May, 2019
Irish Classical Theatre Company625 Main Street Buffalo, NY 14203
Renowned Shakespearean scholar, Dr. Barbara Bono, will present a talk entitled:
"Hamlets and Your Hamlet: A Conversation about Famous Hamlets, the ICTC Hamlet, and Your Hamlet”
in collaboration with ICTC's production of "Hamlet."
If you think about it, pretty much everybody has a Hamlet. The most famous text of western literature, a play full of questions, we have all heard something about it, and some of us think we know it very well indeed. Deeply contemplative but driven by revenge, political and skeptical, misogynist and Oedipal, melancholic and very funny, it challenges us with its twists and contradictions. The Irish Classical Theatre Company’s new production of the play offers audiences a chance to think yet again about what is their Hamlet, and to talk it over after the play with UB Shakespearean Dr. Barbara Bono.
