Shakespeare’s Hamlet performing at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

Shakespeare’s Globe is set to explore the world of surveillance and counter-surveillance in their new production of Hamlet – performed for the very first time in the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Performed by the Globe Ensemble, Hamlet is horrified by the role he seems required to play as madness threatens to rip apart the lies around him and expose the truth beneath.

Sean Holmes’ production explores Shakespeare’s iconic tale of manipulation, disruption and coercion for the first time in the intimate Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Mr Holmes returns to the Playhouse after directing the ensemble productions of Henry VI and Richard III in the 2019 Winter Season.

The role of Hamlet will be played by George Fouracres, who delighted audiences with his performances in the 2021 Summer Season productions as Flute in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Aguecheek in Twelfth Night.

Mr Fouracres, an actor and comedian, is a member of the critically acclaimed sketch trio Daphne alongside Jason Forbes and Phil Wang.

Hamlet will run from January 21 to April 9.
