Shakespeare at the Castle | University of Mount Union

Dear Friends,

We were thrilled to be able to tell you the story of A Midsummer Night’s Dream last summer, and judging by the extraordinary attendance, you enjoyed it as well.  It was so good to see old friends and meet new ones, and now we’re readying ourselves for our most ambitious production yet.  It’s always a challenge to decide our season; we want to find stories you’ll enjoy hearing and ones that we’ll find exciting to tell.  This year, the choice was clear.

In a video call to the British Parliament on March 8, the embattled Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke of his country by quoting Shakespeare: “The question for is now is ‘to be or not to be?’ “

As of this writing, it is unclear what will happen to Zelensky and his country, and our thoughts turn to the victims of this barbaric aggression.  Amid the chaos and uncertainty of war, we can think of no other story to tell you this summer than the greatest of all tragedies, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.  It’s a timeless story of betrayal and vengeance, both a cautionary tale and a tale of courage, and we think Glamorgan Castle is the perfect venue.

We hope you’ll join us to hear this old story, which is as relevant now as it was 413 years ago…
