CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

What is currently on at Guild Hall and Charter Theatre (V524)

Hamlet: First Cut

A fast-paced thriller set in a world of paranoia and surveillance. An urban, modern dress production based on the First Quarto collected from the actors who first performed it: many believe this is the closest we can come to seeing the play as Shakespeare's public did. Muscular acting delivers some of the best words uttered in the history of theatre. An eerie, post-industrial landscape - a bold percussive soundtrack - a very contemporary Hamlet for the year 2000.
