Hamlet Tour – Autumn 2021


A successful autumn tour of our brand new show Hamlet

London, United Kingdom - Thursday 22 October 2020 - New International Encounter, Hamlet.

This October our new show, Shakespeare in a Suitcase – Hamlet, toured to schools and libraries (as part of the Library Presents season) in Cambridge and London.

Over 2 weeks we went to:

  • 10 Schools
  • 2 libraries
  • played 18 performances
  • to 1,100+ audience  

School feedback 

“I liked when she was singing love songs and when she was dancing. It made me feel interested of what will happen next and made me feel happy” 

“I really felt it. It was amazing, it was deep but they made the audience laugh to” 

  “I really liked it because it had humour, heart-break and pain. The music quality was great. I loved the songs and the sound was calming. I especially liked the fight at the end. The way they told the story appealed to me. Ophilia was my favourite, but everyone was great.” 

“You guys are such talented people, I would love you to come again (please do!) You are good singers. I found it funny to. It’s probably my first theatre act seeing you at the school.” 

“The production of Hamlet was amazing. All the children were really engaged and on the edge of their seats. The music was brilliant and we really loved joining in with the songs. I was also great that they chose some children to take part in the show. A truly enjoyable afternoon for all. I would throughly recommend.” Mrs Griffiths Y5 teacher 


Library Presents

“Hugely enjoyable and accessible version of Hamlet. The pace and selection of scenes was well conceived for abridged storytelling, and the small ensemble cast brought to life numerous characters with help from some surprising props. Who knew so much comedy was contained in this well-known tragedy?” 

We were so pleased to include NIE in our Autumn Season, the quality and experimentation are always a great surprise.”
