Benedict Cumberbatch is set to play the lead in the Barbican Theatre's highly-anticipated production of Hamlet. The Olivier-winning Sherlock star will switch to Shakespeare in 2015 to play the revenge-filled Danish prince in this exciting new production directed by Chimerica's award-winning Lyndsay Turner. Ciaran Hinds co-stars as his deadly foe and uncle, Claudius.
