Sunrise Senior College presents this superb series with award-winning playwright John Strand.
Join Sunrise Senior College in class or on zoom in a series of Hamlet Under the
Hood hosted by John Strand, a nationally recognized, award-winning playwright,
author of a dozen published plays, and former playwright in residence, Arena
Stage, Washington, DC. He has taught the History of European Theater and Creative Writing for New York University’s Experimental Theater Wing in Paris. He has written on theater for numerous publications, including Le Monde, International Herald Tribune, and the Washington Post.
Starting on Saturday, March 11, we will examine how and why the play was
constructed and what it is that still drives audiences today to want to see
it. In addition to reading the play before class, we will view video excerpts
of different productions and discuss the plot, characters, motivations, and impact. This is your chance to see how a great theater piece works – whether you’ve seen or read this play before or not.
