Rediscover the tragedy that is Hamlet, in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s modern rendition of one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays. Broadcast LIVE from Stratford-Upon-Avon, feel the raw emotions portrayed by the cast, transmitted exclusively to Eden Cinema screens on the 8th of June at 8pm.
Hamlet, played by Paapa Essiedu, has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead. Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.
Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona 2014) directs Paapa Essiedu in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy. As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own mortality in an imperfect world.
