Hamlet (an experience)

Hamlet (an experience)

October 12, 2018

The Rose Playhouse

After breaking new ground with their award-winning Richard III (A One Woman Show), Brite Theater are once again reinventing Shakespearean performance with their new adaptation of Hamlet directed by Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir.  Emily Carding plays Hamlet and you, the audience, are the players arriving at Elsinore. Hamlet needs your help to take on the roles of his friends and family and resolve the great questions of life. Journey through the play together and become immersed in the story like never before. Hamlet has the questions. Do you have the answer?


London premiere fresh from sold out shows and rave reviews at Edinburgh Fringe.

“Sigfusdottir’s adaptation and Carding’s sensitive interpretation provide a shortcut to the empathy that many Hamlets crave but seldom achieve.” **** The Stage

“Encounter Shakespeare's most iconic story from the inside” **** Fringe Guru

“It’s an extraordinary feat, a tour de force. Shakespeare doesn’t get more up close and personal than this” ***** UK Theatre Network


Dates: 12th & 13th October 2018, 7.30pm

Tickets: Full price - £10 / Concessions - £8

The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
