Poster for Hamlet at Fort Nelson

About

Join The Lord Chamberlain's Men this summer for Hamlet at Royal Armouries: Fort Nelson. With a history stretching back to William Shakespeare's original company, the group presents this great play as he first saw it – in the open air, with an all male cast and Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.

"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark."

Hamlet the Prince returns home from university for the funeral of his father, the King of Denmark. It's also the occasion of his mother's remarriage to his uncle, at which Hamlet is visited by the ghost of his father. The ghost reveals that his brother, Hamlet's uncle, now stepfather and King, killed him - and he urges Hamlet to take revenge. Driven to distraction by the grief of his father's death and what lies ahead of him, Hamlet is forced to confront his deepest fears and in doing so questions himself, those around him and the very nature of existence.

"To be, or not to be, that is the question."

Thrilling, moving and deeply human, this stunning play seeks answers to life's biggest questions and, in doing so, holds up a mirror to all our natures.

"Thus conscience does make cowards of us all"

The show starts at 7pm, so why not arrive early with your chair and a picnic and relax while you prepare to be entertained and transported. Book early to avoid missing out!

Running time: 2h 10m, including interval.
