"Robert Icke finds new truths in old words in this captivating production starring Andrew Scott"
The Arts DeskBuy Tickets
It is a truth universally acknowledged that any actor worth their salt will eventually tackle the Dane. One of the world's most recognisable plays, Hamlet allows the player the chance to explore the true depths of their performance. Welcome then to Andrew Scott, whose incredible performance as the troubled prince as directed by Robert Icke at the Almeida has afforded him a West End transfer, and a fantastic opportunity to bring this masterpiece to a wider audience.
This modern-dress iteration of the tragedy also stars Juliet Stevenson as Gertrude and Jessica Findlay Brown as Ophelia, alongside Scandi-noir inspired design from Hildegard Bechtler.
One of Shakespeare's best-known tragedies, the play is set in Denmark where the title character plans his revenge against the uncle who murdered his father, before usurping the throne for himself and marrying his mother. After a period of self-imposed exile, the dispossessed prince makes his return from the shadows, consumed by grief and a lust for revenge against the man who betrayed him, ready to give everything to get it.
