Hamlet - The Clown Prince

Our first show is 26 June 2012 at St. Peter's Church, Burnham

The first folio of Shakespeare's play contains this stage direction:

"Hamlet, Act V, Scene 1, enter the clowns"

This year we tackle Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, Hamlet. Our version creates a new way of telling this story. The action is seen through the eyes of a group of travelling clowns. The clowns arrive in the middle of the tragedy and their actions are in stark contrast to the cold harsh world of the Elsinore Court.

The play's the thing................................

Our version of Hamlet has travelled to schools in Ealing and Hammersmith, day centres in Windsor and Burnham and theatres in Bucks and Berks this year.
