Hamlet – Friday 15 and Saturday 16 April
Peter Evans’ critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet returns in 2022. 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. Featuring Harriet Gordon-Anderson as a young man experiencing grief in its most complex and profound state, this is a Hamlet for our time.
