The story of Hamlet is well known to all, his murdered father and his widowed mother who married his uncle. The story also tells of the unfortunate Ophelia, her brother Laertes and their father. Adapted and performed by a quirky itinerant troupe and their puppets in an ancient translation. All the famous monologues are sung with original musical accompaniment. It is a truly strange company of players, one of their members is even a gravedigger! The actors immerse themselves in their roles so much that they eventually succumb to the murderous madness of one of Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedies. Radost Theatre presents Hamlet in a slightly different way: as a grim musical inspired by the poetry of fairground puppeteers.
