The Discarded Nut Theatre Company presents Hamlet adapted and directed by Noël Jones

Young Prince Hamlet's world is turned upside down following the death of his father. Alienate from a mother he adores when she inexplicably marries his father's younger brother, the newly-crowned and murderously ambitious King Claudius, Hamlet struggles to find his place in this new world order. The sight of his father's Ghost imploring him to defend his decaying legacyand avenge his execution, leads Hamlet down an even darker route; an uncontrollable slide
into madness.

Creating a modern day setting arose following three key news events during the summer of 2016 - the Brexit vote; "We are Here", a modern memorial to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme and the continuing rise of mental health issues for young people.

Running Time: 3 hours + Interval (195 minutes including 15 minute interval)

Director: Noël Jones
