Following acclaimed performances in Burnt By The Sun, The Revenger’s Tragedy, Philistines and The Man Of Mode for the National Theatre, now Rory Kinnear gives audiences his Hamlet.

Shakespeare’s most famous role, Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark, vows to take revenge on his uncle, whom he believes murdered his father before marrying his mother. But his own melancholy, fear and rage causes the prince to procrastinate…

In addition to his credits for the National Theatre, Kinnear has been seen on stage in Measure For Measure at the Almeida theatre, Mary Stuart at the Donmar Warehouse and Festen at the Lyric. His screen appearances include Quantum Of Solace, The Long Walk To Finchley and Cranford.

Kinnear is directed in Hamlet by Nicholas Hytner, the Artistic Director of the National Theatre.
