Go inside the mind of Shakespeare's grief stricken prince as Hamlet is performed in the intimate confines of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse for the first time, directed by Sean Holmes.
A country under attack. A family falling apart. A mind in turmoil.
If our real selves are revealed in times of crisis, who’s to say what’s real or not when the crisis is born of manipulation?
Embracing the atmosphere and claustrophobia of the candlelit playhouse, this production of Hamlet takes you inside the mind of the grief stricken prince as Hamlet seeks revenge for his father’s alleged murder.
Performed for the first time in the intimate confines of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Associate Artistic Director, Sean Holmes, and the Globe Ensemble shed candlelight on the intensity of Hamlet as they bring this tale of corruption and disruption to life.
'There is nothing either good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.'
Act II, scene 2
