The Shakespeare Project and Snow City Arts

Partnering with Snow City Arts (, The Shakespeare Project brought to life hospitalized children's "erasure poetry". After a performance of The Project's "50 Minute Hamlet" students at Children's Memorial and Stroger Hospitals worked with Snow City Arts' resident poet Eric Elshtain to tell their own stories by choosing select words from Hamlet's famous "to be or not to be" speech, and erasing the rest. The result is some very moving, personal poetry from some very courageous young people. Click on the link below to experience this moving presentation.
