How do we grieve together?

Hamlet-Mobile is an immersive, site-specific adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet staged in a cargo van. Each night, the Hamlet-Mobile parks in a new location and performs one of eight short pieces for groups of one to four people. Repeat audience members can piece together the meta-narrative of The Moving Shadow, a fictional theater company grieving the loss of its founder by performing Hamlet.
