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.

But - expect some surprises as The Play Group interprets the story in a liberal and modern fashion!
The company’s exhilarating, high-speed production involves the public as usual in the action, with moments of high comedy and terrible tragedy to delight the spectators.

The language levels are suitable for all levels of English, from Elementary schools to High schools and Universities. Students are encouraged to ask questions (in English) after the show about the play or other subjects that interest them.

On booking, teachers will be given pre-show material to help students gain maximum benefit from the show. This includes an introduction to the storylines, themes, vocabulary, exercises, games and audio files to help students’ pronunciation.
