Hamlet captures the Almeida Theatre’s 2017 acclaimed production of William Shakespeare’s great play, recorded as-live in its West end transfer on the stage of London’s Harold Pinter Theatre.
Directed by Robert Icke and staring Andrew Scott in the titular role, Hamlet was produced at the Almeida Theatre and later moved to the West End. Icke’s modern take on Shakespeare’s play see’s Hamlet speak to his father’s ghost through CCTV and has been widely acclaimed as a dazzlingly intelligent, forcefully contemporary staging.
The recording features the original cast, and is directed for the screen by Rhodri Huw, working in close collaboration with Robert Ike.
