Do not miss the last screening of our NT Live season ! Hamlet on stage with Benedict Cumberbatch, filmed at the Barbican Theatre. 


Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC TV’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game, Frankenstein at the National Theatre) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.

As a country arms itself forward, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
