    Hamlet, Prince of Grief

    From Iran comes a humorous and most unusual rendition of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Written by Mohammed Charmshir, the work is performed by Afshin Hashemi in Farsi with English subtitles and employs an imaginative menagerie of plastic toys to symbolize the inhabitants of Hamlet’s drama.

    "With dark, expressive eyes and a rich, versatile voice, Mr. Hashemi is a compelling presence, ably suggesting a man haunted by the agonizing tale he must recount.”
    – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
