Hamlet by Black Theatre Live, Stratford Circus
For the first time in Britain, an all-black cast present Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy.
Denmark, a Black Empire of modern England, where an intelligent young student discovers the world he once knew has crumbled. Implored to defend what is left of his father’s decaying legacy, Hamlet now faces the greatest moral challenge – to kill or not to kill.
Directed by acclaimed actor Jeffery Kissoon (read interview) and adapted with Shakespeare’s text by award-winning playwright Mark Norfolk, this fast-moving version gets straight to the heart of a young man’s dilemma.
A co-production with Watford Palace Theatre and Stratford Circus Arts Centre
