Hamlet story

Learning of his father’s death, Prince Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his ‘foul and most unnatural murder.’ About the production The Globe Ensemble, including Artistic Director Michelle Terry, bring to life Shakespeare's most famous tragedy, Hamlet, in the Globe Theatre as part of our summer 2018 season. Encompassing political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humour, Hamlet is a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of Shakespeare’s genius.
