“★★★★★ A touching, thoughtful, and thought provoking production, “Hamnet” is theatrical gold.”
— ARTS REVIEW, OCT 2017

Hamnet is a solo work for an eleven-year-old boy, that stormed the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2017.

William Shakespeare had one son. He named him Hamnet. He then left home to pursue his career in the theatre, effectively abandoning his family. In 1596, he was told that the boy — who was then eleven years old — was seriously ill. By the time Shakespeare reached Stratford, Hamnet had died.

In 1599, Shakespeare wrote a play called Hamlet.

Hamnet is too young to understand Shakespeare. And he is one letter away from… being a great man. We are too old to understand Hamnet. How close are we to greatness? We meet in the middle, in a theatre, in purgatory: youth reaching forward to a life it will never know, an audience reaching back to a life it has forgotten.

Text by Bush Moukarzel, Ben Kidd and William Shakespeare. From the makers of the Fringe First and OBIE Award winning LIPPY and Chekhov’s First Play.

Over the course of a beautifully spry hour you can admire the performance’s bright surface or plunge into it fathoms deep”
