Something is rotten in the state of Denmark
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark but you don't have to leave Canberra to find out all about it! Because the Bell Shakespeare Company is bringing Hamlet, one of William Shakespeare's most iconic and most tragic works, to the Canberra Theatre Centre this April.
Set 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 mother's hasty remarriage to his uncle, and the vision of his father's ghost looming in his mind's eye. A story of revenge, passion and deception, this is a Hamlet for our time.
Directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans and featuring Harriet Gordon-Anderson as a young man experiencing grief in its most complex and profound state, this Hamlet will be told through the lens of loss, betrayal and madness.
Hamlet is playing at the Canberra Theatre Centre from April 9-18. Tickets cost from $45 - $98.50. Please see the website below for more information and to book your tickets.
