hamnet dead centre photoWilliam Shakespeare had one son: Hamnet. While William was away working in London, Hamnet died at 11 years old without ever knowing his famous father. How do our dreams impact our families?

Do adults really have it all figured out? Or are we blind to what we could have done better until it’s too late?

In Hamnet, a tour-de-force performance from a young actor confronts what it means—and what it costs—to be great, and how living in the shadow of that greatness can keep one in the dark.



In this moving, meticulous, multimedia wonder, ambition clashes with family responsibilities in a way that rivals the stakes of a great Shakespearean tragedy.

Recommended for ages 11+.
*Parental Advisory: One scene in this production contains some nudity of a non-sexual nature.

Runtime: 60 minutes, no intermission

“This fascinating production takes us into a child's view of the world, without any sentimentality.”
- The Guardian
