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. Amidst all the chaos his mother has committed the ultimate betrayal.

And now a masked figure has been seen, stalking the shadows. There is whisper of a resistance, gathering in the dark. As paranoia and rumour swirl around the fractured state the truth is becoming ever more distant and unknowable.

To be or not to be, that is the question - but can Hamlet find the answer before his own doubts and fears eat him alive?

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.
