Kupenga Kwa Hamlet : Direct from Shakespeare's Globe in London Other events...
UK Arts International and University Theatres presents Kupenga Kwa Hamlet Direct from Shakespeare’s Globe, London

Starring Tonderai Munyevu & Denton Chikura

Australian Premiere

“A rollicking, fast-paced bit of storytelling… has a surging, gung-ho vibrancy that effectively transforms it from tragedy to ripping yarn” – Time Out

Staff discount available - see below for details.

In the twilight of a pre-colonial Zimbabwe – a world of unyielding beliefs and ritual, where the afterlife and the present co-exist – we are told the story of a young tribal prince wrestling with madness.

His father is murdered, his mother is incoherent and a new, dangerous chief is ruling his homeland.

Two actors, two props and the convergence of two cultures are all it takes to create an urgent, poetic and spiritual reimagining of the rarely seen First Quarto of Shakespeare’s classic.

“A masterful Hamlet in which its actors perform with passion, energy and confidence” – British Theatre Guide

The New Fortune Theatre, a hidden gem in UWA’s beautiful grounds, is the southern hemisphere’s only Elizabethan-style theatre. As the resident peacocks roost and the summer stars come out, experience theatre as Shakespeare intended!
