Hamlet is back from university; back home to a restless little island hanging on to the edge of Europe. Everything has changed; his country is in crisis; his father murdered; and his uncle, a right-wing strongman, has seized power. Amid all the chaos his mother has committed the ultimate betrayal. This modern promenade production will place Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy within a contemporary context that will illuminate both the play and our own relationship with its timeless themes.
