Hamlet 120 - Richmond 05
Ed Stoppard
Ed Stoppard, rising talent of the British stage and son of one of our most talented playwrights, Tom Stoppard, takes his crowning glory in the title role of Hamlet. Anita Dobson, award-winning star of stage and television returns to Richmond Theatre to play Gertrude, in a highly charged and dynamic production of the Bard’s classic.

Returning to court to find his father murdered and his mother married to the murderer, Hamlet faces a terrible dilemma.
