Fat Ham

Dr. Davis's AP English class recently had an exciting outing to Broadway to watch "Fat Ham." This Pulitzer Prize-winning adaptation of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" infuses modern themes of Black masculinity, queer identity, and individuality into the classic tale. It was a wonderful opportunity for students who had previously read "Hamlet" in class last semester. One of the highlights of the performance was the main character's headbanging rendition of Radiohead's "Creep," which the students particularly enjoyed. This contemporary adaptation offers a fresh take on the classic story and encourages students to explore modern-day issues in literature.
