Bell Shakespeare


Director Damien Ryan
With Josh McConville & Matilda Ridgway

‘This company knows how to make Shakespeare fresh, accessible and relevant.’ – Aussie Theatre

Anguish, passion and desperation collide in this tragic telling of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark who is tormented by the impossibility of his dilemma, and who remains one of theatre’s most fascinating characters.

Dark acts result in darker consequences. And there is little that’s darker and more complicated than the act of revenge!

A family torn apart by murder, a son burdened with the truth and the task of avenging his father and a country on the brink of war.

Damien Ryan, returning to Bell Shakespeare following the critically acclaimed Henry V in 2014, will deliver a new production of Hamlet, infused with the passion, contemplation and emotion that Shakespeare’s compelling poetry cries out for. Josh McConville (Griffin Theatre Company’s The Boys and Sydney Theatre Company’s Mojo) and Matilda Ridgway (Sport For Jove’s A Doll’s House) will delve into the depths of the complexity, violence, philosophical reflection, madness and maddening seduction of Hamlet.
