Directed by Catherine Mary & Mike Fish
Blood, Sweat and Tea Productions presents a contemporary setting of Shakespeare’s classic revenge tragedy.
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, returns home to find his father dead and his mother remarrying to his corrupt uncle, the new King. After a supernatural revelation, he is compelled to avenge the murder of his father. However, the path to exacting his vengeance does not run smooth…Using contemporary events in Trump’s America as a source of influence, this accessible production brings the fairy-tale grandeur of Shakespeare’s vision into the 21st Century, showcasing a state of corruption, fading glamour and family loyalty.
