So there's an English translation of a German adaptation of Hamlet
that was found in a monastery in 1710, and Oxford don Tiffany Stern thought it was so weird that it might actually be a puppet show. Austin's Hidden Room Theatre
decided to partner with her to help test that idea. The show itself
opens the weekend of the 17th; tonight, though, Professor Stern (recovered from transatlantic jetlag by then, we trust) talks about the play to enlighten and delight the theatre-loving public in this free lecture. 4pm. Free.
