Maxine Peake as Hamlet

Directed by Sarah Frankcom, 2015, 195mins

After murdering his own brother, King Hamlet, the devious Claudius succeeds him to the throne and even marries his widow, Gertrude. Prince Hamlet seeks revenge and sets about to overthrow his evil uncle, which results in tragedy.

Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated works, and its concoction of murder, betrayal, loyalty and love has captivated audiences for hundreds of years. BAFTA nominated actress Maxine Peake stars in this fresh adaptation which is a perfect blend of old and new. 

Hamlet has been hailed a triumph by some of the most discerning critics; The Guardian described Peake’s star turn as ‘’delicately ferocious’’, while the Manchester Evening News declared it to be ‘’a milestone Hamlet’’. 

 

"A triumph of re-invention... intimate and intense... stunningly good" *****
