About Bernhardt/Hamlet at Melbourne Theatre Company

By Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Anne-Louise Sarks

Paris, 1899: legendary French actress Sarah Bernhardt is world-famous … and broke. To turn her fortunes around, she sets her sights on the only role worthy of the greatest actress of all time, horrifying traditionalists and delighting gossips along the way.

In her directorial debut as Melbourne Theatre Company’s Artistic Director, Anne-Louise Sarks leads Hollywood star of stage and screen Kate Mulvany (The Twelve, Hunters) in a cast of ten in this large-scale, whip-smart play inspired by real events.

A brilliant comedy about a woman ahead of her time, Bernhardt/Hamlet is a timeless exploration of gender and equality.
