I’ve put up blog posts in the last couple of months announcing the growing grass roots theater/educational/social/cultural movement in Kent that is otherwise known as Our Hamlet, and it’s fearless hometown leader Hal DuBois keeps sending me updates that are too good not to share.
In our version of Avon in Kent, here’s a note from our Bard, Mr. DuBois:
I just returned from Boulder, CO, where I was a special guest of the Shakespeare Theatre Association. This is a group of all the 24/7/365 Shakespeare festivals and companies around the U.S., with a growing international membership. It was simply an incredible experience, and has drawn many new friends to the project. This is especially important because, as I look for resources for local readers, there’s no sense in trying to reinvent the wheel. You could fill the Kent Free Library with the literature that has been generated about Hamlet (estimated now to fuel the publication of over 400 critical essays and articles every year!), and these human resources know what it is to put the words into action with a clear voice, the ultimate purpose and intention of dramatic literature.
