Flute Theatre Company’s critically-acclaimed adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet comes to the intimate space of Trafalgar Studios 2 this December in a co-production with English Touring Theatre.
This thrilling and bold production makes its West End premiere after wowing audiences across Europe.
Flute Theatre's Hamlet delves deep into the divided self of the protagonist. The unique company of just 6 actors keep the essence of Shakespeare’s tragedy, condensing the action into the single, bloody night of Hamlet’s mother’s wedding. By dawn only a gravedigger will be alive…
This is Hamlet as you’ve never seen before.
