A Bell Shakespeare production
A family torn apart by murder, a son burdened with the truth and the task of avenging his father, and a country on the brink of war.
Anguish, passion and desperation collide in this tragic telling of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark who is tormented by the impossibility of his dilemma, and who remains one of theatre’s most fascinating characters.
Damien Ryan, returning to Bell Shakespeare following the critically acclaimed Henry V in 2014, will deliver a new production of Hamlet, infused with the passion, contemplation and emotion that Shakespeare’s compelling poetry cries out for.
Josh McConville (Griffin Theatre Company’s The Boys, and Sydney Theatre Company’s Mojo) and rising star Matilda Ridgway (Sport For Jove’s A Doll’s House) will delve into the depths of complexity, violence, philosophical reflection, madness and maddening seduction of Hamlet.
