Introduction by Bahram Beyzaie

Directed by Mohammad Aghebati; Written by Mohammad Charmshir.

In Persian.

Using household objects and children's toys to play out a domestic and political history of betrayal and death, Shakepeare's tragic hero comes to terms with his violent fate through an obsessive retelling of the moments that preceded the tragedy.

Featuring acclaimed Iranian actor Afshin Hashemi, Hamlet, Prince of Grief was first presented in Iran by Leev Theater Group, which was chosen as Iran's "Best Theater Group" by the Critics and Writers Association of Iran's Theater House and was named Tehran's "Best Theater Group" by the Dramatic Arts Center.
