The Bell Shakespeare Company
Hamlet holds ‘as 'twere, the mirror up to nature,’ and we are entranced. A reflection of our own age, Hamlet is timeless, inexhaustible, limitless – a compass pointing the way to the soul of our own discontent.
After the death of his father, Hamlet is besieged by suspicion, apparition and wild imaginings. Is he mad, or the one solid rock in a wild storm of treachery and insanity?
Be drawn into the psychological labyrinth of Hamlet, as Marion Potts delivers a contemporary, poignant interpretation of arguably Shakespeare’s finest tragedy. Brendan Cowell brings his brilliant intensity to the lead role in this thrilling collaboration.
A tangled web of obsession, family secrets and betrayal, Hamlet is the map for a searing examination of life’s true core.
