by William Shakespeare

The tragedy of a hopeful young man who has a task placed on his shoulders that weighs too heavily for him, which he fails at and ultimately perishes, symbolises a successor generation, its values and ideals and the decision to rebel against the abuse of power, manipulation and corruption in politics and restore justice.


The production uses intense physicality and emblematic costumes to emphasise the archetypal characteristics and ambivalences of the characters, while a simple, poetic visual language allows the audience to focus on Shakespeare's study of man and his linguistic masterpiece.

The Globe Ensemble presents the original English-language version of "Hamlet" from 1 August.
