Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, National Theatre Live will broadcast this eagerly awaited production live to cinemas. As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet (Benedict Cumberbatch) rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Time Out remarks, “One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I’ve ever seen, of anything, ever.”
