The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will be topping off their national tour of Hamlet with a run at Hackney Empire throughout March. Part ghost story, part family tragedy, part dark comedy, Hamlet is a gripping thriller that matches the dark times we live in. It’s directed by Simon Godwin, a seasoned RSC director and associate director at the National Theatre. A modern take on the timeless play, it begins with a student who returns home from university to find his life turned upside down. Rising star Paapa Essiedu’s Hamlet is mercurial, intelligent and charismatic – and it’s easy to see why he won best performance in a play at the UK Theatre Awards in 2016 for this role. Alongside Paapa, the cast includes Romayne Andrews, Lorna Brown, James Cooney and Patrick Elue, with music composed by Jamiroquai percussionist Sola Akingbola. Not one to be missed.
