Hamlet (Solo)

Hamlet (solo) combines the ancient art of storytelling and the modern solo show, a thrilling evening that focuses on the three most essential elements of theatre: The Actor, The Text and The Audience.
This production is best described as “bare bones” in its presentation with Bhaneja playing seventeen parts in a two-hour version using only Shakespeare’s text.
This critically acclaimed production has been enjoyed by audiences as diverse as the people of Inuvik, a community north of the Arctic Circle and the next generation of Britain's young actors at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. An exceptional and rare experience for both the novice and Shakespeare enthusiast!

"5/5 Stars... Almost before he can take a bow his audience have leaped from their seats in a standing ovation.”

- The List (UK)

Without set, props or even other actors to help him move things along, Bhaneja engages in urgent, energetic storytelling.

- Now Magazine

Astonishing vividness… Shakespeare, dead all these centuries, lives again!

- The Chronicle Herald

Never any doubt that we were going to give Bhaneja a standing ovation at the end."
