A revenge thriller asking: Does revenge justify murder?

Do I murder the king now or wait for proof? Are women constant and worthy or flippant and unfaithful? Is life worth living?

To be or not to be… Hamlet asks these questions as he struggles to find one moral absolute in a murderous, corrupt world.

Shakespeare’s most iconic and challenging play – arguably the world’s greatest dramatic work – goes for the jugular without hesitation.

A fresh, kinetic, and above all accessible production, perfect for students and adults alike to learn or re-visit the story.

This is an ensemble play with respect for realism and the eloquence of the verse blended with physical theatre and a subtle score.
