We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:

Following her triumphant triple-extended New York run Eddie Izzard performs her solo performance of Shakespeare’s ‘HAMLET’ in London for a strictly-limited six-week run.

‘HAMLET’ marks Eddie’s second solo show following last year’s sold-out run of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, which played to rave reviews in NY and at The Garrick Theatre in London’s West End. Eddie’s performance of Shakespeare’s ‘HAMLET’ will see her take on 23 characters in a very unique re-telling of the iconic play.

The King of Denmark is dead and Prince Hamlet is determined to take revenge, initiating a cascade of events that will destroy both family and state. Eddie will be portraying men, women, ghosts, scholars, tyrants, courtiers, lovers, fools and poets. She says:

“I have always gravitated towards playing complex and challenging characters and Hamlet is the ultimate. This is a production for everyone, a timeless drama with an accidental hero. Selina, Mark and I want audiences to see and hear an accessible, touching, scary and dramatic Hamlet.”

London’s Telegraph called Hamlet “Absorbing and intimate. An impressive sweeping performance. ★★★★”

NBC-TV'S Today Show said “To be or not to be 23 different characters, that is the question. And Eddie Izzard’s Hamlet is the answer.”
