Excited and daunted to announce the next project: a hybrid and high-concept theatre-film of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a collaboration between MA Acting Classical at Central and Illuminations Media, with whom we worked last year on Cymbeline 19 & 37.

We’ll be making the work in a physically-distanced form over nine weeks, shooting in the Embassy Theatre in October, my first attempt at making a piece of corona theatre. I’ll be joined on the journey by regular collaborators Manuela Harding and Max Dorey (design), Rachel Bown-Williams (violence), Morwenna Rowe (voice) and Beth Cotton (stage management); and I’m tremendously excited to work with some formidable creatives for the first time: Ingrid Mackinnon (movement), Beth Duke (sound) and Ben Jacobs (light).
