The Lord Chamberlain's Men presents 'Hamlet' at Hatchlands Park

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare's vengeful tragedy, Hamlet, performed on the lawn at Hatchlands Park.

  • Booking essential

Returning home from university for his father, the King of Denmark’s funeral, which is also the occasion of his mother’s remarriage to his uncle, Hamlet the Prince, is visited by the ghost of his father.

The ghost reveals that his brother, Hamlet’s uncle, now stepfather and King, killed him and he urges Hamlet to take revenge. Driven to distraction by the grief of his father’s death and what lies ahead of him, Hamlet is forced to confront his deepest fears and in doing so questions himself, those around him and the very nature of existence.

With a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men present this great play as he first saw it, in the open air, with an all-male cast and Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.
