Hamlet + Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

The Amphitheatre, Roma Street Parkland

23rd August - 9th September

Prince Hamlet is having a rough time. After his father's death, he is overlooked for the crown in favour of the guy who killed his Dad and, even worse, married his Mum. Caught between cultures and philosophies, Hamlet careens between paralysis and unconsidered action. Part philosopher, part improvised explosive device, Hamlet is the anti-hero we are all afraid we might become, and secretly want to.

Inspired by Hamlet and a classic in its own right, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Deadsees two 'minor' characters take centre stage. Witness the comic horror as these ordinary folks vacillate between witty banter and philosophical ponderings on the point of their existence, all while being flung in and out of the orbit of the Prince of Denmark. A tale for anyone who has ever felt out of their depth and in over their head!

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble is proud to partner with the Red Cross, ARAFMI QLD, and Communify to present the A Night at the Theatre initiative.
