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.Performers Tom Hiddleston (Hamlet), Ayhesha Antoine (Rosencrantz/Bernarda), Lolita Chakrabarti (Queen Gertrude), Eleanor de Rohan (Guildastern/Marcelia/Priest), Nicholas Farrell (King Caudius), Sean Foley (Polonius/Osric), Ansu Kabia (King Hamlet/Player King/Gravedigger), Caroline Martin (Horatia), Irfan Shamji (Laertes/Player Queen), Kathryn Wilder (Ophelia).
