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
