Above else: To thine own self be true.
Hamlet’s father is dead, his mother remarried to his uncle – who has just become 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 ravishing, modern, physical and fast paced ensemble production. Denmark will never be the same again.
Recommended for ages 14+.
