The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Hamlet is being screened live from Stratford-upon-Avon at Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough next week.

Hamlet has the world at his feet but then word reaches him that his father is dead.

Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land.

Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice.

Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.

As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own mortality in an imperfect world.

Directed by Simon Godwin and starring Paapa Essiedu, the screening is on Wednesday, June 8 at 7pm. Tickets are £12 and £10 on 01427 676655 or
