Hamlet
Bell Shakespeare presents
Hamlet

28 Apr 2022 to 14 May 2022

Ordered to kill. Tempted to resist. Live or die.

Peter Evans critically acclaimed production of Shakespeares Hamlet returns in 2022.

Inside the glamorous court of Denmark in the 1960s, a family is torn apart by murder and betrayal. Outside, a country is threatened by Norway. And at the centre of this struggle is a man brimming with anguish.

Hamlet is a portrait of a young man struggling with the death of his father, his mothers hasty remarriage to his uncle, and the vision of his fathers ghost looming in his minds 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.

Its a story of revenge, passion and deception, where human desire for retribution quickly becomes a burden. Set against a classically timeless backdrop, family turns on family, friendships disintegrate and the ghost of his father pushes Hamlets entire world to its brink.

To be or not to be. That is the question.
