National Theatre Live’s Encore Series brings back Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.
As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s starring role as Hamlet was the fastest-selling ticket in London Theatre history, with advance seats selling out in minutes almost a year before the curtain was first raised. If you failed to bag a ticket to see the Barbican production, or it’s screenings at New Park last year, take heart, NT Live re-presents one of its biggest hits here for us.
