Drinks Reception: 6.15Pm; Screening: 7Pm
Join us at The Whitby Hotel on Sunday November 10 to see the encore screening of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s ***** production of Hamlet, with Paapa Essiedu in the title role. Start the evening with a drinks reception hosted by Owen Horsley, who regularly directs for the RSC, followed by a screening of the play in the luxurious, state-of-the-art theater.
Directed by Simon Godwin, Artistic Director Designate of the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington DC, this production opened in Stratford-upon-Avon, England in 2016 before transferring to London and Washington DC in 2018.
A student is called home from university to find his life turned upside down. He had the world at his feet, but now everything has changed. Who can be trusted? Who can be believed? Sent by the ghost of his father to avenge his brutal death, Hamlet’s mission to expose the truth is a perilous journey of madness, murder and lost love. What will ultimately become of a young man sent to kill?
