Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

2001
Hamlet

Directed by Robert Currier

Darren Bridgett as Hamlet - Marin Shakespeare Company 2001

Producer's Perspective:

By far the most striking thing about this production was the fact of presenting it before and after the events of September 11, 2001. We had decided to honor and fete Ann Brebner and John Brebner by celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original Marin Shakespeare Festival, a lovely event attended by wonderful alumni like Dan Caldwell, Dakin Matthews, Bob Feero, George Ede, Jackson De Govia and Hope Alexander Willis. The event was held on September 8, although we had originally planned it for the following week. Our first production of Hamlet, a fantastic dinner party and torchlight procession to Forest Meadows where Ann and John were regaled with myriad memories of the festival they created and nurtured from 1961 to 1973, and which had inspired our revival as Marin Shakespeare Company in 1989 - this was an incredibly high time for us all.

That high was shattered the Tuesday morning following when we awoke, stunned, to the events occurring on the East Coast.
