Many directors have tried to recreate Hamlet on stage, today the play became a synonym for the theatre. Each generation has a different answer to the question of existence.

Hamlet’s personality in director’s Vidas Bareikis play is neither that of a romantic hero nor of an idealist. He is just a man looking for the truth. His feelings are real ranging from love and hectic revenge to mourning, rage and desperation. All the emotions create a real human being with all possible colors and shades. Perhaps that is the reason which makes the play so relevant after hundreds of years.

The play is a part of Vidas Bareikis’ beloved initiative “Theatre in the Theatre”. This initiative treats theatre like a shining light that helps to see what is hidden behind shadows – author’s intentions, his dualistic personality, existance itself and everything what happens in or outside the theatre. Hamlet thinks of the theatre as the last institution of justice and raises the question why we are so influenced by our environment? Can our lives be more meaningful? What does duty mean? Why just a few of us have the courage to break the boundaries of limitation?
