In an earlier blog, I indicated that I would write something about the production of Hamlet at the National Theatre. Here goes!

There are six RSC alumni involved including director Nicholas Hyntner and Fight Arranger Kate Waters (who has arranged the fights in our current ensemble’s King Lear ).On stage, you may see Rory Kinnear (Hamlet),Clare Higgins (Gertrude),David Calder (Polonius) and James Laurenson (Ghost and Player King).

There will be a live screening at the Picturehouse in Stratford-upon-Avon on Thursday  9th December. The performance commences at 6.45pm.

Such screenings are usually nationwide, so if you do not live in Stratford there should be a showing at a Picturehouse near you.

Definitely a case of “We’ll hear (and watch!) a play tonight  (or on Thursday!)”

The varied and interesting programme includes many RSC Alumni including Janet Suzman, David Troughton, Anton Lesser, Greg Doran, Kelly Hunter, Greg Hicks, Rory Kinnear, Mariah Gale and Jane Lapotaire. Wow! Details can be found at:
