After last year's rather successful run of Shakespeare's infamous tragedy starring one of his Sherlock castmates, Olivier and BAFTA winner Andrew Scott takes on the troubled Danish prince in this brand new production for the Almeida, directed by Robert Icke, with Juliet Stevenson as his beleaguered mother Gertrude.
