"The Hamlet Apocalypse proves that the experience of theatre can be something we can’t explain and something that defies mere words." - Aussie Theatre
"The Hamlet Apocalypse is unashamedly, wildly theatrical. It’s first-rate, challenging theatre at full-tilt. Experience it." - Greenroom
The Hamlet Apocalypse is a dystopia of the now generation, a silent party, a desperate plea, a rambunctious prayer. Seven actors stage Hamlet on the eve of the apocalypse. As the line between fiction and reality blurs; the actors, their characters and their worlds collide and are distilled into the simplest of human states. It’s about the power of death and the value of life.
Following hugely successful seasons at La Mama, Adelaide Fringe and La Boite, The Hamlet Apocalypse returns to Brisbane for a limited time only
