Using household objects and children's toys to play out a domestic and political history of betrayal and death, Shakespeare's tragic hero comes to terms with his violent fate through an obsessive retelling of the moments that preceded the tragedy.

Featuring acclaimed Iranian actor, Afshin Hashemi, Hamlet, Prince of Grief was first presented in Iran by" Leev Theater Group", and is now continuing its US tour by" First Day Theater Company". Its Us Premier was at Under The Radar Theater Festival where it received great reviews from publications such as the New York Times.

"The play reorganizes the regulations of the text and provides a modern and contemporary view into the classic work." - Tehran Theater
