National Theatre

Wednesday 5th October 2017

7.00pm £12/£6


We’re really excited to be offering audiences another chance to see this incredibly popular title, after the huge success of its 2015 live broadcast.  We are sure that many of those who saw Hamlet live in 2015 – plus many Benedict Cumberbatch fans! – will be very pleased to see Hamlet returning.

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.

Now seen by over 750,000 people worldwide, the original 2015 NT Live broadcast returns to cinemas.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.
