By William Shakespeare
Played Jan 2023
This above all:
To thine own self be true
Hamlet’s father is dead,
His mother remarried (to his uncle),
His uncle is now King.
Told through the eyes and experience of the young characters (yes, the adults are gone) Shakespeare’s monumental play comes to the stage in this contemporary, raw, physical and fast paced ensemble production.
Denmark will never be the same again.
Presented in association with Southwark Playhouse 'Shakespeare for Schools' project which offers over 1000 free tickets to local Southwark Schools.
This production is made with the support and generosity of
A new Denmark
