In the fall of 2016, in the wake of the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, the rising Black Lives Matter movement, and a divisive presidential campaign, The Public Theater's Mobile Unit toured a production of Hamlet, directed by Patricia McGregor and starring Chukwudi Iwuji in the title role. Join Patricia and Chuk, the current Director of the Mobile Unit, Karen Ann Daniels, Mobile Unit's Community Programs Manager, Praycious Wilson-Gay, and James Shapiro, Shakespeare Scholar in Residence, for a look back at that production, and a frank discussion of issues of race, Shakespeare, the meaning of community, and the past, present, and future of The Public Theater’s Mobile Unit.   

WHO’S THERE: HAMLET AND BLACK LIVES will be made available with Closed Captions and Spanish Subtitles. For additional information or if you have questions, need assistance, or an accommodation not mentioned above, please contact us at [email protected].
