Hamlet - 2017 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

£10 - £60

After last year's rather successful run of Shakespeare's infamous tragedy starring one of his Sherlock castmates, Olivier and BAFTA winner Andrew Scott takes on the troubled Danish prince in this brand new production for the Almeida, directed by Robert Icke, with Juliet Stevenson as his beleaguered mother Gertrude.

One of Shakespeare's best-known tragedies, the play is set in Denmark where the title character plans his revenge against the uncle who murdered his father, before usurping the throne for himself and marrying his mother. After a period of self-imposed exile, the dispossessed prince makes his return from the shadows, consumed by grief and a lust for revenge against the man who betrayed him, ready to give everything to get it.

Hamlet's a challenge for any actor, but when Jessica is cast as the titular character in a New York production, it sends her into an existential tailspin. It doesn't help that her acting coach is borderline abusive, or that every Starbucks barista with an MFA tells her she's too young for the role. Or that she's somehow managed to make Sir Patrick Stewart her nemesis. Not to mention the fact that she's a woman. How can Jessica figure out “to be or not to be,” when she can't even figure out herself? Featuring an all-female cast performing multiple roles, Women Playing Hamlet is rip-roaring fun for Shakespeare fans and haters alike. Performances run December 3rd thru the 19th, 2021 at Curtain Players, 5691 Harlem Road, Galena, Ohio 43021. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit: http://curtainplayers.org
