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.
