'Hamlet’s Dream' by David Schalkwyk

Excerpts from the interviews with the former political prisoners that I conducted in 2008 as the basis of the play, The Robben Island Bible have been published and critiqued in Hamlet’s Dream by South African academic David Schalkwyk, the most recent publication in the Arden Shakespeare Now! series. In June, I will travel to Washington DC as a guest of Dr Schalkwyk to direct a gala presentation of the play at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

On the 3rd of June 2013, a reading of the play will be produced at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC as part of a gala presentation which includes a display of Sonny's 'Bible' in the Library.
This reading will be the most complete version of the play to date.
