As you may be aware, Shakespeare in Action turns 25 this year (we’re all grown up!), so you’ll forgive us if we’ve been caught up in nostalgia lately. Photo Friday lends the perfect opportunity to take a look back, quite literally, at our long and storied history. And since the first show of our 25th anniversary season is Hamlet, let’s take a peek at this priceless relic from the early days of Shakespeare in Action.
In this scene, advisors to Hamlet (i.e. students from a local secondary school) gather around to give the prince some much-needed counsel.
(Bonus points if you can deduce based on hairstyle alone in which decade of our illustrious history this photo was taken!)
