That famous scene in Hamlet…

A production of Hamlet for the ‘Game of Thrones’ generation is coming to Preston.


Icarus Theatre Collective is performing their ‘sexy, bloody and fast-paced’ interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tale.

Director Max Lewendel said: “The King of Denmark is dead. His son Hamlet – whose depression is festered by the death of his father – shatters the narrative and drives it forward.

“The young prince is not self-pitying or self-indulgent. He is angry. He is infuriated by the world that envelops him. Torn and enabled by his mental malady, the Herculean character embarks on a self-destructive rampage to avenge his father’s death.”

Icarus blend traditional and physical theatre with an original musical score.

Performances take place at the Charter Theatre on Wednesday 18 January and Thursday 19 January.

There’s two shows a day, one at 1.30pm and another at 7.30pm.

Tickets start from £10 and are available from the Guild Hall website.
