Hamlet

Hamlet - Flute Theatre

“Raw and Riveting”
★★★★  The Stage

Flute Theatre’s Hamlet delves deep into the divided self of the protagonist. The unique company of just 6 actors keep the essence of Shakespeare’s tragedy, condensing the action into the single, bloody night of Hamlet’s mother’s wedding. By dawn only a gravedigger will be alive…

This is Hamlet as you’ve never seen before.
