WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Blind Hamlet transforms Shakespeare's tragedy into an interactive theatrical battle and reimagines the bloody struggle for Hamlet's Elsinore. Volunteers take to the stage to outwit each other as a different power-struggle unfolds at each performance, with Hamlet turned on its head and every spectator a player. Iran's leading playwright, Nassim Soleimanpour wrote the critically acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit. This, his follow-up, is produced by Actors Touring Company, winner of a 2013 Fringe First Award with The Events. Blind Hamlet reveals how nations and individuals trap each other, and themselves, in their frenzy to tell friend from foe.
