Hamlet

Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga makes her American theatrical debut in a passionate, critically acclaimed portrayal of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, directed by Yael Farber and featuring an ensemble of leading Irish actors. Known in the U.S. for her work in film (Loving) and television (Preacher), Negga’s portrayal of Hamlet "shifts from boyish vulnerability to martial ferocity." (Financial Times) With Farber’s direction, the focus moves from Hamlet’s anguish and identity to the power of resistance against treachery and the raw usurpation of power.

Watching the groundlings interact with the cast on Saturday night was heartening. Young people fully engaged and wanting more - eager to participate in all the goings-on. Yes!

But the weather was no competitor for the waves made from leaf blowers, the stylised french sailors, the stunning costumes (Valentine's was my new all time favourite ever) and the general tomfoolery highlighted within this great yarn of disguise and dissipation (whether calculated or heart-felt)
