HAUNTED HAMLET.

 

Rediscover the spirit of Shakespeare’s most famous play, Hamlet, as the titular prince of Denmark seeks vengeance for the murder of his father at the hands of his Uncle Claudius. Prince Hamlet’s suspicious mind and haunted nights will hold deep resonance for this Vertigo Theatre Presentation. This tale is a ghost story, detective story and revenge story all rolled into one classic plot. Following the smash hit success of Macbeth, The Shakespeare Company and Hit+Myth team up again for another macabre re-imagining of the one of the Bard’s greatest works.
