PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Arguably Shakespeare's most famous play, and quite possibly the most
> famous play ever written, Hamlet is a masterful story of revenge and
> redemption, pain and passion. Under the daring direction of VisionQuest's
> Artistic Director Montica Pes (Aurora Theatre's The Rainmaker, Rogue
> Planet's Measure 4 Measure and Closer), VisionQuest's Hamlet is a
> no-holds-barred affair which speaks to our turbulent times. Debatably
> >
> "Shakespeare has been presented from a boring English major's perspective
> for too long," says Pes, "it's time to do the Bard proud. We've got
> firearms, big swords, raunchy dancing, and some of the most beautiful and
> talented actors in Atlanta performing never-before-seen trapeze work,
> fight choreography and movement while speaking the most vivid, witty, and
> spectacular language all without a net."
>
> >
> Rather than being `clever' by forcing Hamlet's world in a specific era,
> or producing another Renaissance Shakespeare, Pes has created a modern
> Denmark with flashes of chivalric style and other-worldly beauty. The
> result is a world that is at once awe-inspiring, and provocative while
> being accessible. We've seen the philosophical, torn, or incomprehensible
> Hamlet-VisionQuest gives the audience a Hamlet that speaks to their hearts.
