Hamlet

Friday 15 March 8pm
Emily Carding
Tickets £10

Following on from last year’s Richard III (a One-Woman show), Emily Carding takes on the role of the Danish prince in Hamlet.

Adapted by Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir, this production immerses the entire audience by inviting them to become players. Hamlet is a director with the aim of ensuring that the truth of his story is told. Scripts are tentatively handed to cautious volunteers in what they are assured is a safe, nurturing environment.
