  • Theatre/2014/Globe/G2G Hamlet/CG

Learning of his father’s death, Prince Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his ‘foul and most unnatural murder’.

Encompassing political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humour, Hamlet is Shakespeare’s ‘poem unlimited’, a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of his genius.

Be part of a completely unprecedented theatrical adventure and follow this two-year worldwide tour of our pared-down, small-scale Hamlet, which will visit all nations on earth.
