WAAPA presents Shakespeare’s Hamlet

Thursday, 22 July 2010

Tags:

WAAPA is delighted to present one of Shakespeare’s most enduring and compelling plays, Hamlet, directed by acclaimed Australian Director Aarne Neeme.

Shakespeare’s Hamlet is a brilliant depiction of the hero’s struggle with two opposing forces: moral integrity and the need to avenge his father’s murder.

Performed by third-year acting students, the play will stay true to Shakespeare’s original approach, utilising a bare stage, with a single outdoor lighting unit and actors wearing their own clothes.

Director Aarne Neeme encourages audiences to attend, and believes Hamlet’s success is in its timeless appeal.

“My feeling is that Hamlet has remained such a major work because it contemplates and attempts to resolve the very nature of our existence.”
