  4. Lazarus Theatre’s Twisted Rendition of Hamlet

Hamlet’s father is dead, His mother remarried (to his uncle), His uncle is now King. Denmark will never be the same again.

In 2023, one of Shakespeare’s best-known and most regularly revisited tragedies will embark on a new and radical transformation. Lazarus Theatre Company will champion exciting young talent, many making their debuts, in this raucous rendition at Southwark Playhouse.

Michael Hawkey makes his professional debut as the tormented prince Hamlet, alongside Lexine Lee as the fated Ophelia, also making her professional debut. This classic tale, with its violent twists of physical and mental intensity, archaic script and intricate personalities, is reworked into a strikingly unpredictable, visceral and contemporary show not to be missed.

For audiences who think they know Hamlet, this cast of young talent will inject an enticing, raw, and gutsy interpretation into one of the most iconic Shakespeare plays, revitalising the suspense and shock of the Elizabethan tragedy and offering an all-new experience of Hamlet.
