HAMLET will perform at the Riverside Studios from 23 May - 30 June, following a hit run in New York where it has just extended its run to April 14.

Izzard takes on 23 characters in Shakespeare's complex dark tragedy which explores revenge, madness, and moral ambiguity.

HAMLET is Eddie Izzard's second solo theatrical show following last year's performance of Charles Dicken's Great Expectations, which also had a run in both London and New York. Like the previous show, this one has been adapted by her younger brother Mark Izzard , and directed by Selina Cadell.
