Hamlet 
16 - 17 April 
 Blood, Sweat and Tea Productions present a contemporary production of Shakespeare’s classic revenge tragedy.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, returns home to find his father dead and his mother remarrying to his corrupt uncle, the new King. After a supernatural revelation, he is compelled to avenge the murder of his father. However, the path to exacting his vengeance does not run smoothly…

Using contemporary events in Trump’s America as a source of influence, this accessible production brings the fairy-tale grandeur of Shakespeare’s vision into the 21st Century, showcasing a state of corruption, fading glamour and family loyalty.

Blood, Sweat and Tea productions was founded in 2016 by six alumni of Aberystwyth University. Their aim is to create accessible contemporary adaptations of traditional works. Hamlet will be the company's fourth productions and will take place in the Arts Centre on 16 - 17 April.

Tickets are available from the Box Office on 01970 62 32 32 or online at www.aberystwythartscentre.co.uk
