‘Moving seamlessly from the Almeida to the West End, Robert Icke's production of Hamlet remains extraordinarily, heartbreakingly beautiful’
Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, Olivier Award-winning director Robert Icke’s new production of Hamlet is now playing in the West End for a limited season.
‘Andrew Scott is superb as Hamlet: he draws us with him through the famous soliloquies, making them feel fresh and alive’
Starring BAFTA and Olivier Award winner Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Birdland, Cock, Pride) as the Danish Prince, Derbhle Crotty as Gertrude, and Jessica Brown Findlay as Ophelia, Hamlet is brought to the stage by the critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning creative team behind 1984 and Oresteia.
Robert Icke ‘one of the most important forces in today’s theatre’ (The Observer) previously directed Mary Stuart, Uncle Vanya, Oresteia, Mr Burns and 1984 for the Almeida Theatre.
Hamlet is produced by ATG (Sunday In The Park With George, Buried Child, Oresteia), Sonia Friedman Productions and the Almeida Theatre (Chimerica, Ghosts, King Charles III, 1984, Oresteia) who are renowned for introducing groundbreaking, critically acclaimed transfers to the West End.
