Hamlet by William Shakespeare
ADG-Europe presents TNT Theatre Britain in Hamlet by William Shakespeare in the Courtyard of the Château de Chillon (Open-air performance in english - Rain or shine event)
Hamlet is revealed as a troubled young man who can trust no one , not even the ghost of his father. His attempt to find a moral or meaningful response to the murder of his father and his mother's remarriage to the chief suspect end in tragedy. On the way to its violent climax the play illuminates and explores the human condition with such profundity that Hilaire Belloc famously noted: ''if a person has not read or seen Hamlet they may as well have spent their life at the bottom of a deep well.''
Director Paul Stebbings emphasises and explores the theatricality, using life size puppets as well as highly theatrical ghosts and comedy interwoven with tragedy, as Shakespeare intended. This is not a play about inaction , but of a constant search for truth and justice.
