Hamlet In Cardiff This Week #ShakespeareMarch 12, 2013
Everyman Theatre is proud to present Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
A play of stature and renown. Banned from day one when the bard was told to ‘clean up his act.’ Considered morally and politically offensive. With its secret, midnight burials, secret treaties mirroring a totalitarian state and inciting the murder of a tyrant.
Staged as a group of wild, travelling players drawn from diverse countries, bursting into the market place of Elsinore.
“Hamlet is the play.
…and so shall you hear
of carnal, bloody and unnatural acts
Of accidental judgements, casual slaughter.
All this I can truly deliver.”
In true tradition “The Players” will commence at 7pm in the theatre foyer to regale you with European Singing and Folk tales followed with a pre-show at 7.20pm in the theatre
This production is directed by Gerry Watson.
Hamlet runs at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff from 12-16 March 2013. Performances start at 7.30pm with tickets priced at £10 (£8 concessions available for 2pm Saturday matinee only)
