What You'll Get
Beamed directly from Stratford-Upon-Avon in pristine hi-def as part of National Theatre Live, the Royal Shakespeare Company brings its latest Hamlet to theater screens around the world, including New York's Symphony Space. This version, starring Paapa Essiedu in the title role, features Simon Godwin's contemporary iteration. Hamlet has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad-- until word reaches him that his father has died. Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and the place of his birth 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. The percussive music of Sola Akingbola further enhances this classic exploration of the human psyche of one of the most masterfully written roles in the history of dramatic literature.
Approximate running time is 175 minutes.
