Her Majesty’s Prison Liverpool. G Wing. Hamlet is incarcerated. His father has been murdered. The croaking raven doth bellow for revenge ….
From the Director and Producer of TITUS ANDRONICUS, ‘the most exciting fringe production’ of 2013 (Evening Standard), comes a visceral and unflinching exploration of isolation, paranoia and revenge.
Hamlet is the son of the city’s most infamous crime lord. Locked up in Her Majesty's Prison Liverpool, he learns of his father's murder, his mother's marriage, and his uncle's treacherous role in both. But how do you get revenge in the custody of corruption and the company of snitches? Cut to just over two hours long, Hiraeth Artistic Productions’ HAMLET will be an unstoppable and violent modern thriller: the Bard behind bars.
HAMLET will be the penultimate theatrical production at the Riverside Studios before their two year closure for expansion and refurbishment, and promises to take a fresh, bold and exhilarating look at one of literature’s most celebrated plays.
