by William Shakespeare

Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, Doctor Strange) plays the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. 

Now seen by over 800,000 people worldwide, the original broadcast returns to Irvine Barclay Theatre to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
