Approximately Right Productions in association with Park Theatre presents


By William Shakespeare

Directed by Simon Evans & David Aula
Script edited by Imogen Bond

Cast includes: Benet Brandreth, Gyles Brandreth and Kosha Engler

Directed by Simon Evans (Arturo Ui Donmar Warehouse, A Midsummer Night’s Dream Southwark Playhouse, The Dazzle and Bug Found 111), this is Hamlet stripped to its core and played by three members of one family: Gyles Brandreth, Benet Brandreth, Kosha Engler – father, son and wife. A family gathering, haunted, claustrophobic, intense.

With a running time of 90 minutes, this Hamlet blasts through our expectations of a familiar text offering a unique take on Shakespeare’s most famous play, performed by a unique cast.
