Ophelia pushes Hamlet into a lake, and a fish springs up from between the rows of chairs in a school auditorium. King Hamlet explores purgatory on the sprawling, matte floor of a gymnasium, with basketball hoops in the background. Polonius storms locker-lined hallways with a fizzy intercom spewing words above him. Through it all, a troupe of half-muzzled dancers leads the way, transforming school staircases into Elsinore Castle.
