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

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.

Director Ricky Dukes refocuses the story on the younger characters, exploring their response to the personally catastrophic events in the play. Or so he says. It’s a show sprinkled with fun gimmicks and cool tricks, but it gives a skeletal, feeble, episodic result that completely removes Hamlet from his emotional context.

This is A Streetcar Named Desire for a new generation. It’s sexy and dangerously seductive, but doesn’t fail to have a firm and uncompromising stance on domestic violence. We’re repulsed by Stanley’s antics, then by Mitch’s. Frecknall’s Streetcar is unmistakably feminist and feminine. She hones Blanche and Stella’s relationship, presenting them in all their dignity and flaws, building a sisterhood marred by the needs and threats of the time.
