The Trial of Hamlet
Jan 31, 2011 from 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles in partnership with United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy presents The Trial of Hamlet where the court will determine whether Hamlet was mentally competent at the time he committed the murder of Polonius.
Justice Kennedy will preside over arguments offered by Los Angeles County Bar Association Members Richard D. Hirsch and Blair Burke for the defense and Beverly Hills Bar Association Members Danette Myers and Nathan J. Hochman for the prosecution.
A Jury of 12 community members, including high school and college students, philanthropists, actors, and Los Angeles dignitaries will deliberate and determine whether Hamlet shall stand trial for murder or immediately seek psychiatric treatment.
The Trial of Hamlet is presented by The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles as a part of its 25th Anniversary Season, and is graciously hosted by the University of Southern California Gould School of Law and co-sponsored by Visions and Voices: The USC Arts and Humanities Initiative.
The event is co-sponsored by the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles County Bar Associations.
