The Mysterious First Hamlet

Meet Hamlet in a startling new dramatic light, in Shakespeare's first version

It’s the Hamlet you may never have heard of: compact, active, and the first version printed in Shakespeare’s name. It vanished for two centuries, until a copy turned up in a broom cupboard, causing a sensation. Is it Shakespeare’s first draft, a pirate forgery, or the play that enthralled audiences four hundred years ago? Leave your certainties at the door, as you meet Hamlet in a startling new dramatic light. Runtime: 2 hours and 15 minutes.
