National Theatre Encore Screening: Hamlet
Thu 5 October | Festival Theatre
Duration: 3 hours 35 minutes (including interval)
Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game, Frankenstein at the National Theatre) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.
Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica), Hamlet features Ciarán Hinds as Claudius and Siân Brooke as Ophelia.
As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
