"Play your hand close to your chest." A Chicago ensemble of five brings to life a murder most foul and a son's vow for vengeance in this fractured and condensed adaptation of Shakespeare's HAMLET. Freshly crowned Claudius and his nephew-son lock paths in a game of cloaked intentions. Suitcase Shakespeare blends classical and physical theatre, dance, original music, maskwork and swordplay to create "Shakespeare that Moves" to find audiences that would normally...well... kinda hate Shakespeare.
