Hamlet
The play's the thing

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mark Jackson
 

Through January 2017

We begin with a radical approach to the world theatre’s most enduring classic. Every actor of the ensemble learns every role of the play. Moments before show-time, the actors line up and pull their roles out of Yorick’s skull. They get 5 minutes to gather their wits and then...Bang!! It's HAMLET ROULETTE! When theater legend Steven Berkoff was described as "miscast" in a production of Hamlet he responded: "EVERY actor is right for Hamlet, because there is something of Hamlet in every human being."

It’s the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and Hamlet was the most popular work in his own time and has remained his most produced play to date.
