About the Show/Event
Information for Hamlet at The Jerwood Vanbrugh Theatre, Inner London (Play). Written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Gertrude, Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness - from overwhelming grief to seething rage - and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption. The production is in aid of the RADA Attenborough Campaign to support the transformation of RADA's Chenies Street site in London, further developing the Academy as a world-leader in dramatic arts training. In aid of the RADA Attenborough Project.
