India to host Shakespeare’s Hamlet for the first time

New Delhi, Oct. 15 (ANI-NewsVoir): The British Council, for the very first time in India, is introducing ‘Hamlet’, which was acknowledged as Shakespeare’s greatest play, encompassing political intrigue, sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor.

Directed by Dominic Dromgoole and Bill Buckhurst, Hamlet by Globe Theatre is a completely unprecedented theatrical adventure. This production is a young and fresh version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of deferred revenge that teases out its latent streak of gallows humor and celebrates the exuberance and invention of its language.

Just twelve actors perform over two dozen parts on a stripped down wooden stage in a comparatively brisk two hours and forty minutes.

Rob Lynes, Country Director, British Council, India, says, “We are excited to partner with the Globe Theatre for the first time in India. It is one of the most renowned theatre companies in the world. The play will be web cast nationally, which is a first in itself.”

The performance is slated to take place on October 18, 2015 at Ranga Shankara theatre in Bengaluru. British Council will live-stream the full performance in India at . (ANI-NewsVoir)
