Short sharp Hamlet
We are proud to emphasise that our production of Hamlet will be short, sharp and exciting. You may be wary of seeing Hamlet, and may well ask “How much of my life is this going to take up?” Productions do often run well over three hours. Ours will be over in less than two.
We have cut the script to preserve the best of the story, to keep the text that matters in conveying the journey of Hamlet, his relationships and key events. We believe that our production will surprise and stir you with its inventiveness, risk taking and humour. Yes, there is humour in Hamlet and it resonates in counterpoint to the dark emotion and tragedy.
It means that there will be extra drinking time at the end and the delightful Ludlow Brewery will stay open after the performance.
So, there is no need for any doubts; if you're looking for a modern, meaningful, compelling and compact Hamlet, come to Ludlow Brewery 9th to 17th June, 7.30pm (no performance Sun 12th).
Tickets - £15 full price, £12 students and under 18s – are available online or from Ludlow Assembly Rooms by phone on 01584 878141, or in person at 1 Mill Street, Ludlow, SY8 1AZ.
