What It’s About

Jobsite returns to the Jaeb for this searing tragedy of a man, tormented by his father’s death, that confronts each one of us with the mirror of our own mortality in a far from perfect world. Who can be trusted? Who can be believed? Sent by Hamlet’s father’s ghost to avenge his brutal death, Hamlet’s mission to expose the truth is a perilous journey of madness, murder, and lost love.

A ghost story, detective adventure, and revenge tale all at once, Hamlet is often regarded as the best-written play of all time. 

This is Jobsite’s 22nd season of celebrating the Bard with another epic, engaging staging featuring another powerful score from the company’s award-winning resident composer Jeremy Douglass.

No one in this region "Rocks the Bard" as hard, as relevant, and as daring as Jobsite and their players.
