Overview

Andrew Scott takes the lead role in Robert Icke’s incredible acclaimed production of Hamlet which is set to transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited run, with performances beginning on 9th June 2017 and set to continue until 2nd September 2017.

Robert Icke’s Hamlet was first performed at the Almeida Theatre, where it’s sold out run opened to rave reviews, receiving glowing five star acclaim from Metro, Time Out, The Observer, The Stage and Whatsonstage, being described as ‘liverwire, edge-of-the-seat stuff’ which features Andrew Scott in a ‘career-defining performance’.

Andrew Scott stars in the lead role of Hamlet. Scott has become one of the most talked about Irish actors in recent years, after shooting to stardom in the role of the psychotic Moriaty in the BBC TV series Sherlock as well as his big screen roles in Locke and Pride.

Scott is also a renowned stage actor however, most recently having starred in The Dazzle at the popup theatre Found111, as well as having leading roles in Birdland at the Royal Court and Emperor and Galilean at the National Theatre. Scott has won a huge range of awards, including an Olivier, an IFTA and a BAFTA.

This new production of Hamlet is by Robert Icke, a man known as one of the biggest powerhouses of British theatre today. His previous production of Oresteia at the Almeida won him the Best Director Award at the Olivier Awards, the Critics Circle Theatre Awards and the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, as well as 1984 winning him Best Director at the UK Theatre Awards and Best New Play at the Olivier Awards.

Hamlet is brought to the stage by the acclaimed creative team that had previously worked on both 1984 and Oresteia, including set and costume design by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting by Natasha Chivers, sound by Tom Gibbons and video by Tal Yarden.

Known as one of William Shakespeare’s very best plays, Hamlet is a tragedy written around the turn of the 17th century which has rarely been off the London stage since. Most recently, Sonia Friedman’s landmark production at the Barbican made headlines starring Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch.

Hamlet at the Harold Pinter Theatre is set to be one of the most exciting West End transfers of the year, with Robert Icke’s incredibly acclaimed production getting a chance to expands its audience following a sold out run at the Almedia Theatre.

Hamlet will begin previews on the 9th June 2017, with an official opening on 15th June 2017 and with performances set to continue for a limited time until 2nd September 2017, this is certainly not to be missed.
