Bell Shakespeare’s Hamlet
Canberra Theatre Centre

Ordered to kill. Tempted to resist. Live or die
Inside the glamorous court of Denmark in the 1960s, a family is torn apart by murder and betrayal. Outside, a country is threatened by Norway. And at the centre of this struggle is a man brimming with anguish.
Hamlet is a portrait of a young man struggling with the death of his father, his mother’s hasty remarriage to his uncle, and the vision of his father’s ghost looming in his mind’s eye. A story of revenge, passion and deception, this is a Hamlet for our time.
Bell Shakespeare opens its 30th year anniversary celebrations with one of Shakespeare’s most iconic and tragic works, directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans. Featuring Harriet Gordon-Anderson (The Miser) as a young man experiencing grief in its most complex and profound state, this Hamlet will be told through the lens of loss, betrayal and madness.
This is the world of politics, where a human desire for retribution quickly becomes a burden to struggle against. Set against a classically timeless Danish backdrop where family cannot be trusted, friendships turn adversarial, and the ghost of Hamlet’s father pushes his entire world to its brink.
