The Young Vic Theatre has confirmed new dates for the upcoming production of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet which is now set to play at the theatre from the 27th September until the 13th November.

This new version of the story is directed by Greg Hersov and is set to star Cush Jumbo (The Good Wife, The Good Fight), making her Young Vic Theatre debut to bring this story of power, politics and desire to life. Further casting and creative team for the production have yet to be announced.

Talking about the news, Kwame Kwei-ArmahArtistic Director of the Young Vic, said: “I am delighted that this extraordinary new version of Hamlet will play at the YV this autumn. I want to take this opportunity to thank each audience member who kept their tickets in the show through this period of uncertainty; I can’t wait to have you back into our house, to step into the extraordinary world Cush, Greg and the company will create. Finally, I look forward to sharing more detail on the rest of our 2021 season, including more imminent plans for welcoming you back to the YV, very soon. Until then, peace and love.”
