22 August - 16 September 2017
Directed by Simon Evans (Arturo Ui Donmar Warehouse, A Midsummer Night’s Dream Southwark Playhouse), this is Hamlet stripped to its core and played by three members of one family: Gyles Brandreth, Benet Brandreth, Kosha Engler – father, son and wife. A family gathering, haunted, claustrophobic, intense.
With a running time of 90 minutes, this Hamlet blasts through our expectations of a familiar text offering a unique take on Shakespeare’s most famous play, performed by a unique cast.

'Ingenious, audacious and compelling ninety minutes of pure theatre. What a joy.'
