Quicksilver Shakespeare presents a remount of their flagship production, Mercury Hamlet. In this 100 minute cut of Shakespeare's iconic play, 10 actors submit themselves to the law of the draw, drawing lots in front of the audience, to determine which role they will take on for the evening's performance. Casting conventions around age, gender, and race are rendered moot and meaningless and each show is alive with fresh possibilities.
