About: Hamlet First Quarto

Courtyard Productions returns to the earliest draft of the text in a setting where the
Earth's future is a bleak return to a medieval feudal system of tech heavy castle keeps
overseeing a harshly weathered world. Prince Hamlet and the companions that inhabit his
world are 'heroes' operating drones that protect Denmark's borders from increasing
international hostility.
Hamlet: First Quarto directed by Rupert Holloway, seeks to mirror the current growing
individualist mentality of a tech heavy generation, in which the diminishing need for
human interaction is fostering an epoch of emotional confusion.
With a run-time of 90 minutes, the rarely staged “Hamlet: First Quarto” is a
fantastic production for those undergrads or students looking to see a version that
returns to the basics of Hamlet, but with a very modern twist! For your
die hard Shakespeare fan, what better way to see in Shakespeare's 450th birthday than
with the first draft of his most famous play; first penned while Shakespeare was operating
out of the Curtain, Shoreditch, to which the Courtyard is the closest remaining Theatre.
