Actor and artist Dickie Beau is bringing his one-person show Re-Member Me to Hampstead Theatre for a limited run.
The show will play Hampstead Theatre from 25 May to 17 June 2023.
The show is centred on a human Hamlet mix-tape that Dickie has built, taking recordings of great Hamlets from the past to channel into an epic one-man lip-sync show.
Along the way he found one especially masterful rendition but no recording exists, and this show strives to bring that Hamlet back to life, through exclusive recordings of interviews with Ian McKellen, Richard Eyre and more.
Re-Member Me is billed as part documentary theatre, part 21st century séance, and a unique theatrical eulogy to the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.
Dickie Beau’s other work includes iShowmanism! at the Ustinov Studio Bath, playing the title role in Botticelli in the Fire at Hampstead Theatre, plus Kenny Everett in Bohemian Rhapsody, and The Dame in Dick Whittington at the National Theatre.
First presented as a scratch performance at the Almeida Theatre on the set of Robert Icke’s production of Hamlet in 2017, Re-Member Me transferred to the Public Theater, New York and went on to play at the Melbourne International Arts Festival and Perth International Festival. It was subsequently nominated for a Helpmann Award in Australia.
Re-Member Me is directed and co-devised by Jan-willem van den Bosch, with lighting design by Marty Langthorne.
