production information

"Moving seamlessly from the Almeida to the West End, Robert Icke's production of Hamlet remains extraordinarily, heartbreakingly beautiful."
Time Out

Following its sold out run at the Almeida, Robert Icke’s new production of Hamlet plays in the West End for a limited season.

Starring BAFTA and Olivier Award winner Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Birdland, Cock, Pride) as the Danish Prince, Juliet Stevenson as Gertrude (until 1 July), and Jessica Brown Findlay as Ophelia, Hamlet is brought to the stage by the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning creative team behind 1984 and Oresteia.

Robert Icke "one of the most important forces in today’s theatre" (The Observer) previously directed Mary Stuart, Uncle Vanya, Oresteia, Mr Burns and 1984 for the Almeida Theatre.

Hamlet is produced by ATG (Sunday In The Park With George, Buried Child, Oresteia) Sonia Friedman Productions and the Almeida Theatre (Chimerica, Ghosts, King Charles III, 1984, Oresteia) who are renowned for introducing groundbreaking, critically acclaimed transfers to the West End.


"Andrew Scott is superb as Hamlet: he draws us with him through the famous soliloquies, making them feel fresh and alive."
Financial Times

★★★★★ Remains extraordinarily, heartbreakingly beautiful.

Time Out

Read Full Review


★★★★★ I have been privileged to see several first-class Hamlets this century... Andrew Scott is at least as outstanding as any of those, and right now I’m inclined to rank him in front.

Financial Times


★★★★★ Andrew Scott delivers one of the great Shakespearean performances of recent years... impeccably supported by the rest of the cast. Remains majestic.
