Icarus Hamlet Tours to Oldham
Date: 19 April 2011
Icarus Theatre Collective and Harrogate Theatre continue have been touring their production of Hamlet and it arrives in Oldham 10-12 May. This new production is directed Max Lewendel.
The King of Denmark is dead. Consumed with grief, Prince Hamlet devotes himself to avenging his father’s death with devastating consequences for his family and the Kingdom. The spirit of a murdered king, the wrath of a vengeful son, and the turmoil of Denmark in 1601.
Shakespeare’s most iconic and challenging play - arguably the world’s greatest dramatic work - tells the tale of young Prince Hamlet avenging his father’s death and confronting his uncle, the new King who stole his throne. Cutting the original text down to around two and a half hours, Icarus Theatre Collective brings vividly to life some of literature’s most vibrant language and characters. This brand new production portrays Shakespeare’s definitive tragedy of justice and revenge.
The production stars Giles Roberts as Hamlet, Loren O'Dair as Ophelia and John Patton as Claudius with set design by Christopher Hone. More details can be obtained from the Icarus Theatre Collective website.
