"They've experienced Shakespeare and they liked it."

— Teacher at Gayhurst Community School

Hamlet provided a wonderful opportunity for our students to be immersed in live theatre at school. The production was incredible. Our Year 6 children were transfixed throughout the performance, enjoying the acting, live music and singing. (Ella Jones, Deputy Headteacher)

NIE’s brand new show re-tells Hamlet in 45 minutes by 2 actors, 1 musician and a few items in a suitcase.

To go alongside the live show, we have created a digital companion piece. These short films can be used to either recap on the story after watching the live performance or they can be used as an introduction to the most famous story ever told!

2. The Ghost…If thou didst ever they dear father love…

3. The story begins on the battlements… (including recap song)

4. Hamlet and Ophelia…To be, or not to be…

5. Revenge!

6. Hamlet – The whole story

Speech 1 – ‘Oh that this too too solid flesh would melt…’

Speech 2 – ‘To be or not to be…’
