The King is dead, long live the King… In the
aftermath of his father’s death, Hamlet has lost
out on becoming the King. He must face not just this loss, but the devastating
grief he feels

for his father. This grief is sharpened by the rage he feels towards his uncle
not only for
usurping the crown, but also for trying to position himself as the new father
figure in Hamlet’s
life. Though rife with betrayal and revenge, the father-son relationship at the
core of this
strand of Hamlet is as recognisable now as it was in 1600.
Following the success of This House is Elsinore at Culture Night 2022, the
creative team
return to bring you this promenade performance through the non-conventional
spaces of the
Moat Theatre — where Shakespeare’s text intersects with the fabric of the
building, the
history of the Moat Club and its members and the echoes of many rehearsals
Adapted and directed by Lianne O’Shea based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Featuring
McCarthy and Roseanne Lynch with Pat Kinevane. Including collaboration and
performances from the members of the Moat Club. Music, Sound Design and
Cinematography by Richard Lennon. Lighting Design by Matt Burke.

Council Arts Service and supported by the
