Hamlet, Prince of Derry
"The city walls are patrolled at night in a bid to keep the peace, and our company find themselves atop the walls one night, sitting around a camp fire, telling ghost stories and tales of Derry history and lore to pass the night. One begins to tell the story of “Hamlet, prince of Derry”, who lived many years prior, during another conflict, when the city was besieged – and, as the story is told, before our very eyes, it comes to life."
We are delighted to announce that we will once again be working with the amazing Conall Morrison who will be directing members of our company in an adaptation by Colin Murphy of Hamlet, Prince of Derry. The vision is to open the play in a post-Brexit Derry, where the city is once again surrounded by a hard border.
