About the event

Bell Shakespeare opens its 30th year anniversary celebrations with one of Shakespeare’s most iconic and tragic works, Hamlet, directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans. 


Inside the glamorous court of Denmark in the 1960s, a family is torn apart by murder and betrayal. Outside, a country is threatened by Norway. And at the centre of this struggle is a man brimming with anguish. Featuring Harriet Gordon-Anderson (The Miser) as a young man experiencing grief in its most complex and profound state, this is Hamlet through the lens of loss, betrayal and madness.

Ordered to kill. Tempted to resist. Live or die. A story of revenge, passion and deception, this is a Hamlet for our time.

"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so."

HAMLET, ACT 2, SCENE 2

"This play is an astonishing work of art."

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, PETER EVANS
