HamletDuration 3h45

Harold Pinter Theatre, Panton Street, London, United Kingdom SW1Y 4DN

Olivier Award-winning director Robert Icke’s ground-breaking and electrifying production of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, starring BAFTA Award-winner Andrew Scott in the titular role, transfers to the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Icke previously directed Mary Stuart, Uncle Vanya, Oresteia, Mr Burns and 1984 for the Almeida Theatre, and now sees his interpretation of Shakespeare's epic tragedy brought to the West End.

Juliet Stevenson (until 1 July) stars as Gertrude, and Jessica Brown Findlay as Ophelia, with the show produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and the Almeida Theatre (Chimerica, Ghosts, King Charles III, 1984, Oresteia) who are renowned for introducing critically acclaimed transfers to the West End.

A limited number of tickets for £30 and under are reserved at every performance for people aged 30 and under, available to purchase in person at the box office with valid age ID, subject to availability.
