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. This new production intends to take a fresh look at the play through contemporary eyes.Performers Ben Whishaw (Hamlet), Al Weaver (Hamlet - Mon Eve and Mats), Samantha Whittaker (Ophelia), Imogen Stubbs (Gertrude), Tom Mannion (Claudius/Ghost of the King), Lewis Barfoot, Edward Hughes (Guildernstern), Nick Jones (Polonius), Rory Kinnear (Laertes), Jack Laskey, Sid Livingstone (Voltimand), Tom Mison (Fortinbras), Samuel Roukin (Osric), James Simmons (Marcellus), Kevin Wathen (Rosencrantz), Al Weaver (Reynaldo and Hamlet at selected performances).
