This unique Hamlet is raw, intimate and bold, featuring just six actors, a sofa and a dum-kit.  Kelly Hunter adapts, directs and performs in the production, which tours Europe this summer culminating at Hamletscenen, Kronberg Castle, Elsinore as part of the 400th centenary Shakespeare celebrations. Hamlet, who’s there? explores notions of the divided self and the transference of grief within one impossible claustrophobic night; after 90 minutes only the grave-digger is left alive.

Presented in association  with English Touring Theatre.
