Looking at Shakespeare's Hamlet Through a Writer's Eyes
Pam Tibbetts wrote for Rapture Theatre that "
is an enigma, a paradox, a multi-layered mystery. For centuries it has fascinated audiences, critics, and scholars alike." Can reading the play from a writer's perspective help you better understand it? Join OLLI instructor and stage and screenplay writer Lynn Elliott to examine this question and see how the techniques writers use to build what we see today on stage, in television, and in movies are the same techniques Shakespeare used in his writing.
