Literature Transforms You

Press Release—Dartmouth, MA

Let Hamlet Transform You

In this video, J.C. Wallace portrays the complex role of Hamlet. “To be, or not to be” is one of the best-known lines in English literature. Wallace gives a superb performance of Hamlet’s greatest soliloquy.

Wallace is the founder of the Rhode Island Shakespeare Company and has portrayed Hamlet for the Little Theatre of Fall River.

This video was produced by JoAnne Breault, Director of Communication for Changing Lives Through Literature (CLTL). Breault oversees CLTL’s Literature Transforms You campaign which promotes reading literature as a way to enhance lives. CLTL is based at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and was founded by Dr. Robert Waxler and Judge Robert Kane as an alternative sentencing program.

This is the second video in the Literature Transforms You series. Watch the first video—The Tell-Tale Heart.
