The Stratford-upon-Avon Picture House are to screen David Tennant’s Hamlet as part of the Shakespeare Film Festival. The 2009 film will be shown from 7pm on Wednesday 23rd October.
The Royal Shakespeare Company’s award-winning production of Hamlet, directed by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran, stars David Tennant in the title role. Made by Illuminations, this screen version of Shakespeare’s great tragedy retains the quality and tone of the critically acclaimed stage production and was filmed on location. All key original members of the cast, including Patrick Stewart as Claudius, star in this special 180-minute production, which also has the same creative team. The film is directed by Gregory Doran and designed by Robert Jones, who also designed the stage production.
