To be, or not to be – that is the question:


Bard in the Barracks is thrilled to announce that our 2014 production will be Hamlet, perhaps the best known and most widely admired of Shakespeare’s works.

Pending final approval from Fredericton City Council, the production is tentatively slated to run June 25th through July 6thin Odell Park.

Our production will take you to the mysterious and combustible world of a squatters’ camp in Odell Park peopled by an itinerant community with a complex and highly developed culture and hierarchy, along with strong ties of blood.  There, Shakespeare’s profound and thrilling revenge tragedy will unfold amid the rocks, streams, and dark, wooded corners of the forest.

Continue to watch this site, follow us on Twitter, and watch Facebook for further details. What we can tell you for now is that we expect Hamlet to be our most intimate, immersive, and exciting Odell Park production yet. It also promises to be our most daring and unconventional, offering you a Hamlet unlike any you’ve ever seen before!

Stay tuned, Fredericton! Spring is just around the corner!
