Hamlet

Hamlet

Iris Theatre (St Paul's Church) · 19 JUN - 27 JUL

"To be or not to be, that is the question..."

Overview

Amid the rubble of the old politics a populist King rose to power, promising a return to England’s golden age. But now he is dead, murdered; and in the following bloodbath his brother has seized the throne.

A masked figure has been seen, stalking the shadows. There is whisper of a resistance, gathering in the dark.

To be or not to be, that is the question – but can the nation’s heir, Hamlet, find the answers?

Uphold the state; or join the rebels?

Be ready to choose in this thrilling contemporary production of Shakespeare’s greatest play; as directed by Daniel Winder.

Critic reviews

Its one strength is that it challenges audiences to consider a transgender perspective. But given the play’s many, many failures, this isn’t sufficient
