About the show

Bonneville Theater Company presents Shakespeare's iconic tragedy reset in an evangelical Christian church in 1990s America. More…

In the 1990s, the evangelical Christian scene was in the throes of a spiritual shift. It was the period that brought about the rise of the mega-church, the birth of the "cool" pastor, the increasing popularity of Christian rock, and the revitalization of youth ministries. When Shakespeare wrote 'Hamlet,' England was also in the midst of a fluctuating theological scene, as the masses struggled to find their spiritual identity in the wake of the Great Reformation. Bonneville Theater Company turns Shakespeare's royal family into a church family, as Hamlet returns home from school to find his uncle helming the congregation his father once led.
