Hamlet, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, takes place as a country arms itself for war and a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. This production, now seen by almost one million people, returns to international cinemas to mark the National Theatre Live’s 10th anniversary.
