What is Hamlet about?
Shakespeare was a genius and Hamlet is often thought to be his greatest work. With this play directed by Sean Holmes, you will be able to go inside the mind of Shakespeare's grief-stricken character.
The atmosphere of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is utilised well as Hamlet seeks revenge for his father's alleged murder. When Prince Hamlet comes to know about the death of his father after he comes back home, finds his mother is now married to his uncle and his uncle sitting on the Danish throne. That night, the ghost of the old king, Hamlet's father, asks Hamlet to avenge his death. Hamlet even presents a play called 'The Mousetrap' that tells the true story of a murder carried out in Vienna. His tragic flaw was his procrastination and his failure to punish his uncle, King Claudius, immediately.
Sam Wanamaker Playhouse catches the need of the play well as it gives the perfect way to portray the show the grief-stricken prince in a candlelit setting. Embark on a journey with Prince Hamlet as he plays with a tale of corruption and disruption to life after his father's death.
