About the Author

Hamlet guarantees a wealth of possible interpretations as well as teasing us with the promise of new meanings that always seem to be just out of reach. Playing Hamlet is considered the greatest challenge for any actor, interpreting the verses which are concerned with ideas of theatricality and performance, along with the struggle to discover one's real self. 

Thought to have been written between 1599 and 1601, Hamlet relates the struggle of the individual soul set afloat on a sea of troubles and madness. Over four hundred years later, with its recurring themes of death, revenge and the impossibility of certainty, Hamlet remains enduringly relevant to, and popular with, a modern-day audience.
