David Tennant's Hamlet Screened At The Barbican Today


David Tennant's Hamlet is being screened at the Barbican in London this afternoon as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Shakespeare On Screen event.

The screen version of the RSC production of Hamlet (2008-9) was filmed on location with the original stage cast and captures the atmosphere and excitement of the orginal stage production. David Tennant reprises his thrilling, mercurial and often very funny central performance alongside the Patrick Stewart as Claudius, King of Denmark. Penny Downie plays Hamlet’s mother Gertrude and Mariah Gale is the tragic Ophelia. Edward Bennett is Ophelia’s avenging brother Laertes, and Oliver Ford Davies takes the role of their father Polonius.

The event is sold out but tickets are still available to see David's recording of Richard II during the Stratford-upon-Avon section of Shakespeare On Screen. Click here for more info.
