Our 2018 production of Hamlet was streamed on YouTube 6 – 19 April 2020. Missed it? It’s still available to rent or buy on Globe Player all year round.
The original performance took place at the Globe Theatre, London, in summer 2018.
The Globe Ensemble, including Artistic Director Michelle Terry, bring to life Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy.
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 a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of Shakespeare’s genius.
