Book Hamlet Tickets at the Old Vic Theatre, London

About Hamlet

This new production of Shakespeare's greatest play, Hamlet marks the exciting pairing of two major institutions of British Theatre: Trevor Nunn and The Old Vic theatre. Trevor Nunn's achievements are famous the world over, from Les Miserables to running the National Theatre, he has brought some of the best theatrical productions to the stage in a career spanning three decades. This will be Trevor’s first production of Hamlet, since his Royal Shakespeare Company production in 1970 and uniquely he is casting a younger company as he explains "Something extraordinary happens when the characters who are students in Shakespeare's story are being played by people of exactly student age."

Synopsis: Denmark stands on the brink of war as the map of Europe is being re-drawn by military activity and political intrigue.

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”.

Hamlet, The Student Prince, is thrown into despair when his recently widowed mother, Gertrude, remarries to his father’s brother, Claudius. A terrifying confrontation with his father’s ghost reveals to Hamlet that his father was murdered by Claudius, who by his actions won both the crown of Denmark and Hamlet’s mother. Hamlet descends into a spiral of rage, despair, vengeance and self-doubt, even spurning his beloved Ophelia as he plots revenge.
