Hamlet is a young man with everything going for him.

A wealthy prince, a successful student, living the good life overseas. But when word reaches him that his father is dead, his world starts to fall apart.

Returning home he finds his mother has married his uncle, and his rightful succession to the throne has been snatched from under him. Everything in his universe has changed, and he struggles to understand it. Hamlet faces a difficult choice: to accept this new reality or to rebel against it.

Never out of season or fashion, Hamlet is a story of human mortality and struggle. A brilliant, relevant play for modern times. View our trailer here:

Changeling audiences will be treated to a unique night of theatre at more than 30 stunning outdoor venues in Kent and London, including the iconic Leeds Castle and Margate seafront. Hamlet opens on 30 June at Boughton Monchelsea Place near Maidstone and closes with a final performance at Pembroke Castle in Wales on 30 August.

Hamlet is not often staged in the open air, but with a brilliant ensemble cast, original music, a unique atmosphere and infused with wit and dark humour, Changeling Theatre promises a Hamlet to remember.
