Hamlet description

Go inside the mind of Shakespeare's grief stricken prince as Hamlet is performed in the intimate confines of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse for the first time, directed by Sean Holmes.

A country under attack. A family falling apart. A mind in turmoil.

If our real selves are revealed in times of crisis, who’s to say what’s real or not when the crisis is born of manipulation?

Embracing the atmosphere and claustrophobia of the candlelit playhouse, this production of Hamlet takes you inside the mind of the grief stricken prince as Hamlet seeks revenge for his father’s alleged murder.

Performed for the first time in the intimate confines of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Associate Artistic Director, Sean Holmes, and the Globe Ensemble shed candlelight on the intensity of Hamlet as they bring this tale of corruption and disruption to life.

'There is nothing either good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.'

Act II, scene 2

Tries too hard to be different.

Hamlet is a long play anyway and more than once I found myself wishing they’d kept to the script and not made it any longer! This production will probably appeal more to teenagers than to mere Shakespeare lovers like me, but it might be a tad confusing to anyone who is not familiar with the play (eg when excerpts from other plays get thrown in). Some original moments, some good acting and some excellent adjustment by Hamlet when a mobile phone unexpectedly landed on the stage, but overall it left me feeling unsatisfied. I never quite got used to the idea of a pond on the battlements and it didn’t really work for the ghost or as a grave. I’ve never before been irritated by the gravedigger scene and came close to leaving at that point - note to producer: don’t scoff at Branagh until you’ve mastered a great production yourself!
