Some outstanding roles, but Hamlet was a bit too much of a pussy and lack... more »
Learning of the king his father's death, Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his 'foul and most unnatural murder'.
Encompassing political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humour, Hamlet is Shakespeare's 'poem unlimited', a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of Shakespeare's genius.
Lasting only two-and-a-half hours at the Globe or when touring with an Elizabethan-style stage, a handful of players will perform a raw, thrillingly elemental production of this inexhaustible play.
