Shakespeare’s Hamlet presents the ultimate mousetrap. Hamlet returns home from school to mourn the loss of his father, the King of Denmark, only to discover his mother has married his uncle, his girlfriend has turned against him and nothing is as he remembers.
“This play takes great joy in watching you grapple with its characters and ideas,” says director James D Palmer. “It has the most rich and complex characters Shakespeare ever penned and he allows them full reign of their ambitions and emotions. Hamlet is an eternal howl, a heated attack on the unknowability of our purpose for being here,” he continues. “It is a constant reminder that the heart of another person will always be a mystery to us.”
