Hamlet (solo) combines the ancient art of storytelling and the modern “one-person show”, a thrilling evening with 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!
