Why Not Theatre

22/23 Performance Season


Ravi Jain, Artistic Director of Toronto’s Why Not Theatre has reimagined, a bilingual Prince Hamlet featuring a cross-cultural, gender-bent cast, breathing new life into the 400-year-old play by challenging traditional ideas of who gets to tell this story. Interweaving Shakespeare’s spoken text with heightened and poetic American Sign Language, this groundbreaking production creates a visually stunning retelling for both hearing and deaf audiences. You’ve never experienced Hamlet like this before.
