Hamlet new

Renowned director Conall Morrison splits open the modern mind in this visceral new production of Hamlet, Shakespeare's great psychodrama.

Killer, philosopher, avenger, stargazer, lover and - just maybe - lunatic, Hamlet questions the cosmos as he tests the man who is his father's killer and his mother's lover.

Working with the finest actors, from North and South of the border, Morrison steers this murderous, metaphysical rollercoaster of a play and gives us a production in love with the language, in a thoroughly modern setting. Filleted to a furious two hours, this is a Hamlet of, and for, our times.

Hamlet is presented in partnership with the British Council as part of their all-island arts programme.

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy”

Hamlet Act I , Scene V.
