Hamlet

Hamlet returns home from University in Wittenberg to discover that his father is dead and that his mother has married his uncle (Claudius). The ghost of Hamlet’s father appears and tells Hamlet that Claudius is responsible for his death and commands him to seek revenge. Shakespeare’s masterpiece of psychological torment and self-reflection is played out in the beautiful gardens of St John’s College. A dynamic, energetic, must-see production.

A beautifully-paced, thoughtful and intelligent production, with plenty of action offsetting moments of real pathos and tragedy —The Times
