Hamlet: A Chamber Play

KDC Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” in an adapted version.

The play’s the thing!

14 – 18 November 2023
at Barons Court Theatre

Tickets: £16.50 (KDC members £12)


Shakespeare’s greatest work is presented in an intimate, stripped down production that ventures to answer the question, “Who’s there?”

Our version of Hamlet will show that everyone can play Hamlet. Or Ophelia. Or Horatio, Rosencrantz, or… You get the idea. We will be exploring who Hamlet and the other characters are when they are played by actors of all backgrounds, ages, ethnicities, and genders. We’ll keep all the famous speeches, do away with anything that isn’t interesting, and create our own version of this fantastic story.
