VIDEO: Watch the All New Trailer For HAMLET at Bristol Old Vic

This visceral new production runs from 13 October - 12 November.

The first trailer has been released for Bristol Old Vic's Autumn headline production Hamlet. Starring Billy Howle and bringing together the hottest young talent and theatrical heavyweights, this visceral new production runs from 13 Oct - 12 Nov.
