It has been announced that Icarus Theatre Collective will be presenting a fast-paced tour of Hamlet at venues across the UK from January to April 2017.
Directed by Max Lewendel, this production of Shakespeare’s tragedy will allow audiences to explore Shakespeare’s text in a new way by blending traditional and physical theatre.
