Free Shakespeare Festival at Presidio

The SF Shakespeare Festival celebrates 35 years of free Shakespeare performances

by presenting “Hamlet” for the first time.


Set in Denmark in 1559, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet is called to

wreak upon his uncle, Claudius, by the ghost of Hamlet’s father, King Hamlet. Claudius

murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying his deceased

brother’s widow.


The plays will be performed at the Main Post parade ground, on Sept. 2, 3 (preview), 4, 9,

10, 16 and 17, at 2 p.m.
