Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game), takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.
As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.

Now seen by over 750,000 people worldwide, the original 2015 NT Live broadcast comes to glór.

One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I’ve ever seen, of anything, ever.  Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out
