Gravedigger's Tale

Produced by Folger Theatre at Folger Shakespeare Library
Conceived and Directed by Robert Richmond with Louis Butelli

October 26 - October 31, 2016

Meet our amiable grave-maker: the houses that he makes last till doomsday.

GRAVEDIGGER'S TALE comes to us this fall from Folger Theatre in Washington, D.C. Our Gravedigger, appearing briefly in Act V of Hamlet, arrives onstage at the Boscobel Mansion with a trunk and a book, using Shakespeare's moving words, traditional music, and help from the audience to bring this enduring story to life. Catch one of seven Halloween Weekend performances!
