William Shakespeare's Hamlet
Shakespeare's epic text in our indomitable style; immersive, brave and experimental.
In 2015 Brave Badger will take over a disused warehouse space in the heart of Portsmouth with a visceral, fast-paced, emotive production of Hamlet. As members of Danish nobility, audiences will explore the decaying grandeur of the King’s court, stalk the haunted castle battlements of Elsinore and experience Hamlet’s soliloquies intimately in conversation with the prince.
The country is under attack, spies are everywhere, secrets are uncovered. Denmark is a rotten state; an unweeded garden inhabited by a cast of ruthless, desperate, cut-throat killers and politicians. Join the game for this epic retelling.
