Above else: To thine own self be true.

Told through the eyes and experience of the young characters (yes, the adults are gone) Shakespeare’s monumental play comes to the stage in this ravishing, modern, physical and fast paced ensemble production. Denmark will never be the same again.

Recommended for ages 14+.
Trigger warnings: This production contains smoke, haze, smoking, strobe lighting, flashing screens, gunfire, blood and scenes of a violent and sexual nature.

Post Show Q&A: Wednesday 25th January (following the 7.30pm performance)

Join us on Wednesday 25th January when host Terri Paddock will be joined by Cast and Creative team to explore behind the scenes and the making of this brand new production in our free post show Q&A.
