Hamlet (1994)

By William Shakespeare

Our 1994 production of Hamlet was directed by Tim Pigott-Smith and starred a very fresh-faced Damian Lewis. It was only the second time that the play had been performed at the Open Air Theatre. Pigott-Smith and Roger Warren trimmed the script so the play ran at 2hr45, which increased it's theatrical dynamism.

"ALTHOUGH there have been several successful versions of Richard III recently, Brian Cox's excellent staging at the Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park, for the New Shakespeare Company is something special. There's a magnificent assumption of the title role by Jasper Britton, who portrays this double-dyed villain with authority and confidence."
