Modern interpretation of the famous Shakespearean play from the Rapture Theatre company. Read More >

In Spring 2010 Rapture, one of Scotland’s most exciting theatre companies, join Greenwich Theatre in bringing a modern Celtic flavour to Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy.

Rapture’s production will combine Shakespeare’s text with a modern, accessible, interpretation on this powerful classic. Set in the contemporary Glasgow underworld, Hamlet is caught between the idealistic world of his university and the world of terror and death that his criminal family represent. When his father dies and his ghost confronts him, Hamlet has to choose between family lies and world truths, the past and the future, life and death. Hamlet, the original young rebel, is a story that will reach across the generations.
Modern music, innovative iconography and faithfulness to this great play, will make Rapture’s production an unmissable event for anyone from 12 years old to 102 years old.
