Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
A treacherous fratricide has torn the veil that separates this world from the next, and the only place that seems to be even more disturbed than the haunted grounds of Elsinore is the inexplicably transformed mind of the grieving prince who sets out on a lingering vendetta.
This production seeks to journey through Shakespeare’s well-known play, focusing on the perspective of a disturbed mind, thus defying the reality-based structure of time and space, recognizing solely the inconceivable logic of a dream.
To sleep, perchance to dream...
Good night, sweet prince!
Hamlet will be played by - Chris Clynes - “Charismatic and commanding on the stage, he is an actor to watch and it is not difficult to imagine this boy becoming something of a star.”
(London Theatre1 - for Hedda Gabler at TheEtcetera Theatre)
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
