Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

A student returns from university to attend her father’s funeral and finds her whole world turned upside down. As she struggles to make sense of her mother's "o'erhasty" marriage to her uncle, news comes from beyond that grave that points towards murder and Hamlet is forced to make a terrible choice.

Is vengeance her only path forward? Can she follow her apparent destiny without destroying those closest to her? And will she survive a journey that takes her to the very brink of madness?

Shakespeare's most human and heartfelt tragedy is both an exciting thriller and a stunning exploration of grief, love and family that takes an audience on an exciting journey to the very core of what it means to be alive.

Please note that this is an outdoor performance, subject to cancellation in the event of adverse weather. Seating is not provided for this performance - stools are available for hire or audiences may bring their own seating.
