Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.
As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.
“One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I’ve ever seen, of anything, ever.”
“This is a Hamlet for a world on the edge: a warning from history, and a plea for new ideas for a new generation.”
“Benedict Cumberbatch is a blazing five-star Hamlet.”
