Rediscover the spirit of Shakepeare's most famous play, HAMLET, as the titular Prince of Denmark seeks vengeance for the murder of his father at the hands of his Uncle Claudius. Prince Hamlet's suspicious mind and haunted nights will hold deep resonance for audiences of Vertigo Theatre. This tale is a ghost story, detective story and revenge story all rolled into one classic plot. Following the smash hit success of MACBETH, we once again present The Shakespeare Company for another macabre reimagining of one of the Bard's greatest works.
