Hamlet (2014)

Following the huge success of Macbeth this spring, the Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut (DAI) Heidelberg have invited Butterfly Theatre Company from London to return to the Tiefburg Handschuhsheim and bring the story of Shakespeare’s brooding student prince to the gloom and drizzle of autumnal Heidelberg: Hamlet.

Famed for their immersive, sight-specific productions, Butterfly invite you to follow the Prince of Denmark on a tour around the grounds and castle to experience his story of treason, intrigue, superstition and murder at first hand with the action unfolding all around you. A fresh and visceral rendering of Shakespeare that will enthrall theatre enthusiasts and first-time viewers alike.
