HamletAn energetic retelling of Hamlet for eight to 12 year olds, this hour-long introduction to the world of Shakespeare arrives at the National's Dorfman Theatre from 30th March. Adapted by Jude Christian (othellomacbeth, Cinderella) and directed by Tinuke Craig (The Colour Purple, Vassa), this production recreates the well known tragedy in a version that's welcoming, inclusive, exciting and fun for young audiences. It opens at the National Theatre following a six-week tour, reaching over 6,000 pupils at state primary and secondary schools across London.

About National Theatre: Dorfman

In place of the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
