If only more companies had the guts to take such risks
Plays to see *****
A privilege to be there, clearly exceptional and important work.

Hamlet, who’s there?
There’s nothing out of place in this charismatic and energetic show, which turned out to be an incredible experience from start to finish. I sincerely hope this isn’t the last time this production is performed on British shores; this fresh and vibrant tour-de-force spectacle truly deserves to be seen by a much wider audience. An absolute triumph.
Hamletscenen Shakespeare Festival, Kronberg Castle, Denmark August 8th & 9th 2016
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.
