With one week to go before previews begin for Bristol Old Vic's new production of Hamlet, we take a look inside rehearsals with brand new photos.

Hamlet marks director John Haidar's return to the theatre after Richard III in 2019, bringing his characteristically cinematic style and pace to the stage to both subvert and reimagine this classic play for a new audience.

Billy Howle plays Hamlet (The Beast Must Die, Chloe, The Serpent). He is joined by Niamh Cusack (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, Channel 4's The Virtues) as Gertrude, Mirren Mack (Sex Education, The Nest) as Ophelia, Finbar Lynch (Girl From The North Country, Game of Thrones) as Claudius, Taheen Modak (The Bay, Two Weeks to Live) as Laertes/Rosencrantz, Isabel Adomakoh Young (Heartstopper, Foundation for Apple TV+) as Horatio, Firdous Bamji (Indian Ink, A Disappearing Number) as Ghost/Player King/Gravedigger, Jason Barnett (Bridgerton,The Seagull) as Polonius and Catrin Stewart (Stella, The Library Suicides) as Guildenstern/Reynaldo/Player Queen.
