Hamlet is a young man with everything going for him. A wealthy prince, successful student, living the good life overseas, bright future ahead. But when word reaches him that his father has died suddenly, Hamlet's world starts to fall apart. Returning home he finds his mother Gertrude has remarried his uncle, and Hamlet's rightful succession to the throne has been snatched from under him. Everything in his universe has changed, and he struggles to understand it. Hamlet faces a difficult choice: to accept this new reality or to rebel against it. Never out of season or fashion, William Shakespeare's Hamlet is a story of human mortality and struggle, and the frailty of human relationships. It's a brilliant, relevant play for modern times and always popular with theatre audiences. Alex Phelps takes the title role in Changeling's dynamic production. Changeling Theatre is delighted to present Hamlet at Middle Temple Hall, London this Summer to mark the company's 20th anniversary. Special charity performance. All the profits will go to The Childhood Trust supporting their work in alleviating the impact of child poverty in London.
