Directed by Steven Maler

Wellesley, MA 02457
Carling-Sorenson Theater, Onstage


Commonwealth Shakespeare Company has partnered with Google to take Shakespeare’s most iconic play to the cutting edge of immersive storytelling in Hamlet 360: Thy Father’s Spirit, embracing the immersive power of VR to plunge the viewer into Hamlet’s harrowing journey. It is a 60-minute, cinematic, 360-degree adaptation that explores new dimensions of the medium by casting the viewer as the Ghost of Hamlet’s dead father, giving the viewer a sense of agency and urgency as an omniscient observer, guide, and participant. A brilliant cast of actors, as comfortable on stage as they are on screen, deliver powerful performances that bring the play forward to today, making it both current and timeless. Please note that while each person will be in an individual headset there will be up to 25 participants in each screening, monitored by staff. The group screening will take place on the stage of the Carling-Sorenson Theater, which requires some amount of walking from the lobby to the backstage area.

Free and open to the public. Registration required, space is limited. Additional screenings may become available as each screening nears capacity.
