Description

DUCT presents a modern-day twist on the classic, inviting its audience into a haphazard and disorderly world, mirroring the turbulence of Hamlet’s madness. The production draws parallels to contemporary mental health issues, illustrating the destructive properties it can have on both relationships and ourselves from the perspective of a female Hamlet. DUCT's production combines Shakespeare's script and narrative with the experience of living with a mental health disorder in 2019. We have redefined the (somewhat offensive) term 'madness' as we view Hamlet's symptoms as a schizoaffective disorder, and focus on how its symptomatic manifestations affect people in Hamlet's life.
