A decade before Shakespeare’s play begins, there’s romance, rivalry and rebellion in the air as teenagers Hamlet, Ophelia and Laertes rage against their parents’ expectations in royal Elisnore.
This thrilling prequel to Hamlet enjoyed a sold out run at the National Theatre in 2008 when it played before NT’s landmark production with Rory Kinnear in the title role.
**** “A top-notch 50 minutes ... a sparky prequel to the main Elsinore action.” Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard.
