We've made our acclaimed 2016 production of Hamlet available for free for teachers to play on demand in their classrooms until Monday (23 November 2020).

The acclaimed production, with Paapa Essiedu in the title role, directed by Simon Godwin and designed by Paul Wills, takes inspiration from West African cultures exploring the play’s themes of family loyalty, superstition and revenge. Watch the original trailer to the UK tour below. 

We've also made a range of supporting resources and film content for teachers and students available online on our Hamlet Broadcast Hub.

All you need to do to access Hamlet is register online, giving us a few details about your school and how many young people will be watching, then we'll send you the link to watch.
