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.


Dr. Bono’s Biography:

Barbara Bono, Associate Professor in the UB Departments of English and Global Gender and Sexuality Studies, has been an all-purpose Shakespearean for over 40 years now. In addition to her scholarly credentials, she has, for twenty years, been UB’s representative to the Folger Institute of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
