After a previous successful run, a national tour and an Olivier award nomination, Hamlet is back for its second run at the National Theatre this month.


Running for less than two weeks, Rory Kinnears Hamlet has been described as one of the best and most unusual and has held its own amongst recent Hamlets including Jude Law and David Tennant.

Set far, far away from its original Shakespearian context, the Prince sports a hoodie and tracksuit bottoms. Untraditional, yes, but will it speak volumes to a younger audience?

Kinnear has been discribed as bringing a touching and moving humanity to the character, and portrays him as a very real, young man who simply becomes over-whelmed by his situation. He portrays the complexities of Hamlet with sesitivity and understanding, whilst still adding a sense of humour to the dark story.


Hamlet is showing from April 14th through to the 23rd at the Lyttleton Theatre at the National.
