Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

St Thomas' Church Hall

Tickets from £7.50

Directed by Elliot Huxtable

The play:

A revival of our acclaimed 2019 production, this performance comes with a twist! We will be having two different actors playing Hamlet – see Alex Rose as Hamlet on the Fridays and Charlotte Groombridge on the Saturdays (with the other playing Laertes on the nights they’re not Hamlet).  Want to see them both? Ticket deals are in place – see both shows for only £15!


Focusing particularly on the familial and interpersonal nature of the play, and omitting the greater political dialogue of the script allows a deeper insight into the characters in this production, one with a twist. With a smaller cast than one may be used to seeing in Hamlet, this production delves deep into the

minds of the central characters and helps bring each of their personalities to the fore.


"What's most impressive about this production of Hamlet is its sheer entertainment value. I can barely count all the different versions I’ve seen of this classic and not only does this version feel fresh and new, but it’s also utterly compelling from start to finish. It’s funny, it’s heart-breaking, it’s gut-wrenching, and it’s philosophical in the way Shakespeare intended" - read the rest of the review here.


The director:

Elliot is the Artistic Director of the festival, and has directed over 30 productions. He is very excited to be restaging Don Quixote, a play he first did 10 years ago when he was at University, and has incredibly fond memories of!

The venue:

St Thomas’ Church Hall,  59 Burgate, Canterbury, CT1 2HJ
