Hamlet

Date: 1 Nov 2021

Inside the glamorous court, a family is torn apart by murder and betrayal.

Outside, a country is threatened by Norway. And at the centre of this struggle is a young man’s grief for a murdered father.

Bell Shakespeare will revive its 2020 production of Hamlet, which was forced to close closing only one-and-a-half weeks after opening due to the COVID-19 lockdown in Sydney.

Harriet Gordon-Anderson returns in the title role of this Peter Evans-directed production, one in which Shakespeare’s seminal revenge tragedy is reimagined for contemporary audiences, transporting them to a wintery Denmark in the 1960s.
