Hamlet’s dad has died, and he feels like the sun is forever behind the clouds. No one else seems to care. They’re all excited about the new King, his uncle, who his mum has just married!

But who is the ghost stalking the castle battlements? And what’s Hamlet going to do about it all?

Leading the storytelling are actors and Globe Education practitioners Fe Drummond and Chris Nayak.

To be, or not to be, that is the question.
— Hamlet, Act 3, scene 1
