Book tickets for Hamlet

Hamlet has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead.

Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.

Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona 2014) directs Paapa Essiedu as Hamlet in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy. As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own mortality in an imperfect world.

★★★★ “Simply a terrific Hamlet, a blazing new star standing at the heart of an intelligent and engrossing production” Sunday Times

“A star is born.. [Essiedu] has the physical poise and self-possession that Benedict Cumberbatch displayed last year at the Barbican… He matches David Tennant, so memorable here eight years ago, in sardonic-edged charm.” The Telegraph
