Hamlet tickets

A radical interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedy

Andrew Scott stars as Shakespeare’s sweet prince in an incredible, acclaimed production of Hamlet in the West End. Director Robert Icke’s radical, modern take on the tragedy runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited season.

Known as one of William Shakespeare’s best plays, Hamlet is the story of a Danish prince who must avenge his father's death, but is frozen by indecision. It has captivated audiences since the 17th century, and become a frequent theatrical event in London, with actors including Benedict Cumberbatch and Adrian Lester taking on the role.

Andrew Scott stars in this new production, having become one of the most talked-about Irish actors in recent years thanks to screen roles in Sherlock and Pride, and theatre including Birdland

Award-winning playwright and director Robert Icke first staged Hamlet in a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, where it enjoyed rave reviews. 

With an incredible central performance and a thrilling contemporary setting, Hamlet tickets are set to be a must-have for theatre and pop culture fans alike. Don’t miss one of the most exciting West End transfers of the year at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

What an absolute masterclass in theatre. This production of Hamlet was done so well - in a modern setting. The sound and production only added to the absolute spectacle unfolding onstage. It was a four-hour play, yet I was entranced the entire time, never wanting to miss a beat. Andrew Scott was magnificent as the titular character, and really brought his own unique spin to the gradual decline into insanity. An unforgettable experience!

This production is beyond words. Robert Icke, the director, is without a doubt a genius! I loved his previous production of 1984, and this is no exception - his modernised setting for 'Hamlet' fits perfectly and in my opinion enhances the timeless classic. All of the cast are brilliant in their role, however special mention MUST go to Andrew Scott who puts in a sublime performance as Hamlet, putting every single emotion on the line. Truly exceptional!

Brilliant interpretation of Hamlet. I also loved the way the relationship between Ophelia and Hamlet was portrayed. It made her feel like a much more rounded character.
