HAMLET

Concert or Performance

24 Sep 2021 to 2 Oct 2021 Once Only Event

Ordered to kill. Tempted to resist. Live or die.

This critically acclaimed production of one of Shakespeare’s most iconic and tragic works, originally programmed for Bell Shakespeare’s 30th anniversary season in 2020, returns to theatres in 2021.

Inside the glamorous court of Denmark in the 1960s, a family is torn apart by murder and betrayal. Outside, a country is threatened by Norway. And at the centre of this struggle is a man brimming with anguish.

Hamlet is a portrait of a young man struggling with the death of his father, his mother’s hasty remarriage to his uncle, and the vision of his father’s ghost looming in his mind’s eye. A story of revenge, passion and deception, this is a Hamlet for our time.

Featuring Harriet Gordon-Anderson as a young man experiencing grief in its most complex and profound state, this is Hamlet told through the lens of pain, loss and betrayal.

This is the world of politics, where human desire for retribution quickly becomes a burden to struggle against. Set against a classically timeless backdrop where family cannot be trusted, friendships turn adversarial and the ghost of his father pushes Hamlet’s entire world to its brink.
