Peter Evans’ critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet returns in 2022.
Inside the glamorous court of Denmark in the 1960s, a family is torn apart by murder and betrayal. Outside, a country is threatened by Norway. And at the centre of this struggle is a man brimming with anguish.
Hamlet is a portrait of a young man struggling with the death of his father, his mother’s hasty remarriage to his uncle, and the vision of his father’s ghost looming in his mind’s eye. Featuring Harriet Gordon-Anderson as a young man experiencing grief in its most complex and profound state, this is a Hamlet for our time.
It’s a story of revenge, passion and deception, where human desire for retribution quickly becomes a burden. Set against a classically timeless backdrop, family turns on family, friendships disintegrate and the ghost of his father pushes Hamlet’s entire world to its brink.
