"This is one of those rare plays that both devastates and uplifts, and reminds us there’s
something in live theatre that can’t be recreated elsewhere". - Daily Review

The Hamlet Apocalypse is a dystopia of the now generation, a silent party, a desperate plea, a rambunctious prayer. Seven actors stage Hamlet on the eve of the apocalypse. As the line between fiction and reality blurs; the actors, their characters and their worlds collide and are distilled into the simplest of human states. It’s about the power of death and the value of life.

"The Hamlet Apocalypse is unashamedly, wildly theatrical. It’s first-rate, challenging theatre at full-tilt. Experience it". - Actors Greenroom
