In this immersive staging the ensemble perform various roles, indeed Hamlet is played by three different actors.  The cast ranges from 22-77 years old and of varied ethnicities, backgrounds and nationalities.


We are giving fringe theatre goers an alternative interpretation and a chance to engage with the play in a more intimate way.
