The Play Group present what is often considered the greatest English language play ever written - Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
This incredible story of treachery and revenge was Shakespeare's most popular play during his time and has enjoyed unparalleled popularity on stage and in film ever since.
When the protagonist Hamlet learns that his uncle has killed his father, the King of Denmark and married his mother, he sways on the edge of madness.
The story is told by the ghost of his father, who urges him to seek revenge. This leads to a series of tragic events which bring about the downfall of the family and the State of Denmark.
