Bob Smith returns for an examination of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" in a seven week series. Open to all at no charge. Free copies of the play will be available. Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play and among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature, with a story that has been endlessly retold and adapted.

As one of the most quoted works in the English language, Hamlet is often included on lists of the world's greatest literature. As such, it reverberates through the writing of later centuries. " shall you hear, of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts, of accidental judgments, casual slaughters, of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause..."
