Reeling from grief, impelled toward revenge, the Prince of Denmark attempts to navigate his father’s death, betrayal, and relationships torn asunder. As the Theater’s founder and artistic director, Gaines has built one of the world’s great Shakespeare companies, where she has directed more than sixty productions, and garnered countless honors and awards.
