More Information on Hamlet
A YOUNG WOMAN RETURNS FROM UNIVERSITY TO ATTEND THE FUNERAL OF HER FATHER AND FINDS HER WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.
Consumed by grief and a promise to avenge her father’s brutal murder, Hamlet embarks on a treacherous journey through an imperfect world, confronting love, loyalty, betrayal, madness and mortality. Following her extraordinary portrayal of Juliet in our recent, highly acclaimed production of Romeo & Juliet, Tessa Parr undertakes the title role to create a contemporary Hamlet for the here and now. Reunited with Director Amy Leach and Designer Hayley Grindle, this promises to be a vibrant, visceral production of one of the greatest plays in the English language.
A Leeds Playhouse production.
