Following 2018’s all-female production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, Girl Gang Manchester returned to Hope Mill Theatre in May 2019 May.
Young HAMLET returns home from university to discover that, not only is their father newly dead, but that their mother, Gertrude, has married their father’s brother, Claudius, and that Claudius is now king.
This was an incredible display of one of Shakespeare’s finest works, with an all-female twist.
Directed by Kayleigh Hawkins
Produced by Hannah Ellis Ryan & Evelyn Roberts
Frailty, thy name is woman!
In HAMLET, themes of female fragility and weakness run rampant, but aren’t the women we know resilient and robust? How can we blur lines and move boundaries in theatrical explorations of gender and the label of ‘frailty’?
During the HAMLET run, 4 teams of female-identifying writers, directors & performers tackledthe words of the Bard, via four works of new writing!
In partnership with Girl Gang Manchester’s ‘HAMLET’
SHOWS: Thursday 9th May @ 7:30pm & Friday 10th May @ 2:30pm 2019
