Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

 

Home from university to mourn the death of his father, Hamlet is forced to watch as his mother Gertrude marries his uncle Claudius, the newly crowned king.  When he learns that his father was poisoned, Hamlet vows to take revenge. Feigning madness, he sets a trap in a reckless attempt to catch the conscience of the king and reveal his treachery.

All The World’s A Stage

 

To forget her sadness over her banished father Duke Senior, Rosalind dreams of courtly love with her cousin Celia and catches the eye of the young wrestler Orlando. When all three must flee her uncle’s Court to the magical Forest of Arden where her father lives, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy for her own protection. Using her newfound male identity, she challenges Orlando’s passion for Rosalind and finds herself the victim of her own love game.
