NTLive Hamlet (Encore) (12A)

NTLive Hamlet (Encore)

Thu 5 Oct

19:00

For one night only, National Theatre Live’s Encore Series brings Hamlet back to the big screen.


Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. Directed by Lyndsey Turner and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, the original 2015 broadcast was experienced by over half a million people worldwide.


As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
