Royal Shakespeare Company - Tours

The RSC's Hamlet, with Paapa Essiedu as the Prince of Denmark, will be touring from January 2018 and is slated to stop-off at the Hackney Empire from 6 to 31 March.

The Royal Shakespeare Company will be touring its latest version of Hamlet during the first quarter of 2018.

That might seem a long way off, but expect demand for tickets to be very high, so you may want to get tickets booked as soon as possible.

For the London run at the Hackney Empire, priority booking has already opened.

For full booking details, check the websites of the individual theatres where the show is playing during the tour.

He had the world at his feet, but now everything has changed.

Who can be trusted, who can be believed?

Sent by the ghost of his father to avenge his brutal death, Hamlet's mission to expose the truth is a perilous journey of madness, murder and lost love.

What will ultimately become of a young man sent to kill?
