Think of it as a live Canadian version of the BBC’s Shakespeare Uncovered episode on Hamlet. Moderated by Martin Julien, the Hamlet Edition will involve three experienced actors talking about the challenges of playing the Bard’s most famous lead character for the Player to Player discussion series. Ted Dykstra, a founding member of Soulpepper Theatre Company, played Hamlet at Theatre Calgary in the ’90s; Gord Rand, a Shaw festival veteran, played the Dane here in Toronto at World Stage in 2009; and Raoul Bhaneja is the creator and performer of Hamlet: Solo, a work in which he performs (nearly) every part.
