In het Harold Pinter Theatre
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.
Starring BAFTA and Olivier Award winner Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Birdland, Cock, Pride) as the Danish Prince, Juliet Stevenson* as Gertrude and Jessica Brown Findlay as Ophelia, Hamlet is brought to the stage by the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning creative team behind 1984 and Oresteia.
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.
* Juliet Stevenson for the first four weeks only. Further casting for Gertrude to be announced.
"It is livewire, edge-of-the-seat stuff’"
"Andrew Scott delivers a career-defining performance… he makes the most famous speeches feel fresh and unpredictable"
