“Fortinbras”: Not (Quite) Shakespeare in the Park | Berkeley

Fortinbras: Not (Quite) Shakespeare in the Park | BerkeleyThe Actors Ensemble of Berkeley presents Fortinbras, a comical play performed at John Hinkel Park in North Berkeley at 4 pm on August 31, September 1 and 2, 2013.

Free,  but first come first served - RSVPs are accepted. Call 510-649-5999 to reserve a seat (seating begins at 3 pm).

Fortinbras  is a hilarious, modern take on themes which continue to be relevant today – hailed by the L.A. Times as a “pungent political satire” with “dialogue as scathing as it is hilarious.” 

Fortinbras begins where Hamlet ends – with the Norwegian prince Fortinbras appearing just as Hamlet expires in Horatio’s arms. Eager to take the reigns of government, he is apoplectic when Horatio explains how everyone (except himself) has died either through homicide, suicide, regicide, or just plain dumb luck. He is hounded by the ghosts of the cast of Hamlet, who want the real story told – and also by his own hubris, which comes back to haunt him as well.
