What's it all about?
Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, Olivier Award winning director Robert Icke’s new production of Hamlet transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season this summer.
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.
