Have you ever wondered why Claudius becomes king over Hamlet? In today's episode, we are exploring the laws of succession that Shakespeare's audience would have understood and diving into how modern productions have highlighted the geopolitical themes within the play. 

 

Shakespeare Anyone? is created and produced by Korey Leigh Smith and Elyse Sharp.

Music is "Neverending Minute" by Sounds Like Sander.
