Production photos: Tom Hiddleston in Hamlet

Published 4 September 2017

To see, or not to see? Well, you’d be hard-pushed to source tickets to the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company and RADA’s fund-raising production of Hamlet, which sees Tom Hiddleston star in the titular role – tickets have already been allocated by ballot, with no returns or tickets on the door available.

Not to worry, however, as brilliant photographer Johan Persson has been at the heart of the action, capturing the all-star cast in all its glory.

Supporting the transformation of RADA’s Chenies Street site in London, the acting company and creative team are made up from members of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company and RADA: Ayesha Antoine (Rosencrantz / Bernarda), Lolita Chakrabarti (Queen Gertrude), Nicholas Farrell (King Claudius), Sean Foley (Polonius / Osric), Tom Hiddleston (Hamlet), Ansu Kabia (King Hamlet / Player King / Gravedigger), Caroline Martin (Horatia), Eleanor de Rohan (Guildastern / Marcella / Priest), Irfan Shamji (Laertes / Player Queen) and Kathryn Wilder (Ophelia).

Hamlet is designed by James Cotterill, with lighting design by Paul Pyant (both RADA graduates), and sound design by Paul Arditti and Christopher Reid. Lucy Bevan and Emily Brockmann are casting directors for the production.
