Hamlet’s father is dead. His mother has remarried. He is alone with his thoughts. Then, he speaks. Haunted by grief, and with his world spinning violently out of control, Hamlet has to make some decisions: forget or remember; live or die.

Rising star Billy Howle (The Serpent, On Chesil Beach) returns to Bristol Old Vic to play the title role. This visceral new production directed by John Haidar excavates the dark subconscious of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy.

This screening includes a cinema-exclusive stage talk with director John Haidar and Emma Smith, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at the University of Oxford and author of the Sunday Times bestseller This is Shakespeare.

Filmed live at Bristol Old Vic in 4K.
