Play, from 1 Mar 2019




A young woman returns from university to attend the funeral of her father and finds her world turned upside down.

Consumed by grief and a promise to avenge her father’s brutal murder, Hamlet embarks on a treacherous journey through an imperfect world, confronting love, loyalty, betrayal, madness and mortality. Following her extraordinary portrayal of Juliet in our recent, highly acclaimed production of Romeo & Juliet, Tessa Parr undertakes the title role to create a contemporary Hamlet for the here and now. Reunited with Director Amy Leach and Designer Hayley Grindle, this promises to be a vibrant, visceral production of one of the greatest plays in the English language.
