By William Shakespeare
21st September – 27th October, 2018
“The time is out of joint. O, cursèd spite,
That ever I was born to set it right!”
A murdered King. A remarried Queen. A state on the precipice. When society starts to collapse, do we fight or flee?
Hamlet is one of the most revived Shakespeare plays in the Gate’s 90 year history (1928-2018). In celebration of the theatre’s pioneering founders, Hilton Edwards and Micheál Mac Liammóir, Shakespeare’s iconic story of politics, vengeance, madness and murder is reimagined in a ground-breaking, visionary Gate Theatre production for today’s audience.
Oscar-nominated Irish actress, Ruth Negga, makes her Gate stage debut in the title role of Hamlet, joined by a cast of Ireland’s finest actors. Award-winning director Yaël Farber heads an exciting creative team including Tony award-winning set and costume designer Susan Hilferty, lighting designer Paul Keogan and composer Tom Lane.
Hamlet will be part of the 2018 Dublin Theatre Festival.
There will be a Sign Language Interpreted Performance of Hamlet on Saturday 13 October at 1.3opm. Patrons availing of this service are advised to book via firstname.lastname@example.org to access a discounted ticket rate and seats with the best sight lines. Amanda Coogan will be the ISL Interpreter for this performance.
