Hamlet

There is probably no other text for the theatre that’s been written and argued about more than Hamlet. The tragedy of a prince that just wanted to take a quick break in his semester abroad for his father’s funeral – but ended up in a vortex of violence, corruption and deception, and became a murderer – focuses on religion, death, philosophy, guilt, in short, on »to be, or not to be«. So it’s a size too big for the little Gorki, right? Christian Weise presents the Container version of Hamlet as a play about a lopsided reunited Germany, the comedic B-side of overwhelmingly vast material that, in the end, is perhaps simply the story of two unequal families that live together but cannot come together.
