Emma Vieceli, original author William Shakespeare, adapted by Richard Appignanesi
The future - a divided world. A great quake divides our planet. Separate colonies have formed and the state of Denmark has grown seemingly prosperous. Its founding family is wealthy; their residence a palace equal to those of ages past. Success, though, breeds corruption - and it could be that the greatest threat of all, over and above challenges from other states, comes from within the walls of Elsinore. The young Hamlet, grieving over his father's death, is plunged into a dark world of misgiving and suspicion when the ghost of his sire appears to him. . .
