About this show

Claudius of Denmark: incestuous, fratricidal traitor or hard-working patriot unafraid of tough decisions? Writer-performer Robert Cohen takes you behind the scenes at Elsinore, replaying the events of Hamlet through the eyes of the prince's uncle-turned-stepfather, and attempting to answer some of the questions left hanging by Shakespeare: Why did Claudius murder his brother? How long had he and Gertrude been consorting? How did he get on with Hamlet prior to the recent unpleasantness? And how did Yorick end up in that grave?

Brighton Fringe Festival. This event takes place at Sweet Waterfron 2, Jury's Inn Waterfront Hotel, King's Road, Brighton BN1 2GS
