Multiple-award winning writer, director and designer Neil Coppen, teams up with the Fugard Theatre for the first time, to breathe innovative new life into Shakespeare’s most performed and beloved tragedy – Hamlet.
Employing his unique collaborative devising approach, and an all-star South African cast, Coppen’s translation of Hamlet will merge performance, music and choreography while situating the plays characters’ within a present day South African political dynasty. It is within this family, that Hamlet must navigate two parallel worlds (the contemporary and traditional) while responding to the demands of his father’s ancestral spirit to revenge his murder. Coppen’s explosive and visceral theatre making-style makes Hamlet one of the most anticipated Shakespeare adaptations of 2020.
