Hamlet Hits Newcastle This Month

Hamlet Hits Newcastle This Month

Featuring the well-known line 'To be or not to be', Hamlet is particularly famous, even in relation to many other Shakespeare plays.

A lot of theatre fans look forward to productions of this tragic tale, about a man who is haunted by his dead father's ghost, and sent on a mission to kill his own uncle.

As well as the poetry of its many soliloquies, the play text also contains a good pinch of comedy, as well as some gripping action.

Shakespeare fans could book short breaks to coincide with a Royal Shakespeare Company production of the classic piece that's hitting Newcastle this month.

Jonathan Slinger is playing Hamlet in this version of the play, set to entertain audiences in the city from October 18th to October 26th at the Theatre Royal.  

Well known actors like Doctor Who star David Tennant and Jude Law have played Hamlet on stage in the past.
