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.

Anastasia Hille and Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet

'This is a Hamlet for a world on the edge: a warning from history, and a plea for new ideas from a new generation.

Captioned screenings 

Working with Stagetext, captioned screenings of Hamlet will allow deaf and hard of hearing audiences to enjoy Encores in cinemas. Captions are similar to television subtitles and give people who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing access to the performance. The actors’ words appear at the bottom of the screen at same time as they are spoken or sung.

The following captioned screenings are currently programmed:

Vue Cinemas: Westfield, Watford, Stratford, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Manchester Printworks, Leeds The Light, Islington, Edinburgh Omni Centre, Cheshire Oaks, Bristol Causeway. All screening on 10 October 2017.

Other cinemas: Key Theatre (Peterborough) on 22 October 2017; Mac Arts (Birmingham) on 3 December 2017.
