One room. An intimate exploration…
Shakespeare’s Hamlet – arguably the greatest play in the English language – is the classic story of the young Danish Prince given the task to revenge his father’s murder. But more than just a revenge tragedy, Hamlet probes the human dilemma of trying to accept life and one’s place in it.
To be performed “in the round and all around”, as performers and audience share one room in an attempt to bring Shakespeare’s epic monument down to a more sensory exploration.
This marks our 15th production and the first time tackling the Danish Tragedy.
