Booking to 9 April 2022
Go inside the mind of Shakespeare’s grief stricken prince Hamlet
If our real selves are revealed in times of crisis, who’s to say what’s real or not when the crisis is born of manipulation?
Embracing the atmosphere and claustrophobia of the candlelit playhouse, this production of Hamlet takes you inside the mind of the grief stricken prince as Hamlet seeks revenge for his father’s alleged murder.
Performed for the first time in the intimate confines of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Associate Artistic Director, Sean Holmes, and the Globe Ensemble shed candlelight on the intensity of Hamlet as they bring this tale of corruption and disruption to life.
Hamlet tickets are booking from 21 January 2022 until 9 April 2022 at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, London.
