Hamlet in Migrant Camp

Shakespeare’s Globe Theater Company is staging ‘Hamlet’ in a squalid refugee camp in northern France, bringing the best-known play to some of the more than 4,000 people living in what is known as the “jungle.”
Wednesday’s performance was among the boldest shows by the Globe in its world-wide tour that began nearly two years ago on the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and ends back home in Britain this April, the 400th anniversary of his death.
For camp residents, the British production may seem a good fit: “They come to Calais in hopes of sneaking to Britain,” AP reported.
The play is hosted by the Good Chance Theater in the heart of the camp, one of numerous structures set up by volunteers to fill the void for displaced camp residents.
