Abe in Fortinbras

(Last Update: 21:16 PDT 19 July 2022 )

The summer production for Actors of Ensemble of Berkeley in 2022 was Fortinbras in which Abe had three small parts: Barnardo, English Ambassador, and Hamlet's father. I did not get a photo of Abe as Hamlet's father, as he was behind the audience for his two-word line. The play was presented in the amphitheater behind the Kensington Community Center.

The pictures below have links to larger images—all are from the 2022 July 16 performance.
