Gertrude: The Cry

Howard Barker's filthy, sexy reimagining of Hamlet

Howard Barker’s shocking and risqué take on Hamlet has its first major London revival at Theatre N16 this summer since its premiere in 2002. Reinterpreting Shakespeare’s classic from the perspective of Hamlet’s mother, this is a striking exploration of female sexuality and emancipation – but also a punky, filthy analysis of lust. Gertrude will be directed by Chris Hislop, Theatre N16 press manager and renowned London theatre publicist, returning to his directing roots after a three-year hiatus. Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
