The Pieter Toerien Theatre and Studio are proud to present Hamlet. If you’re a fan of Shakespeare, or you’re inclined to that sort of tongue, then Hamlet is for you! This cast is tremendously skilled, doubling up on characters and mastering the over two-hour long dialogue. The set is built and used so well. Built on a bed of water, it is simple and transforms seamlessly between scenes aided by the lighting.
The costumes were not too much and having it start as a play, is an interesting approach. The cast is all men, and as we know that at the time, women were not allowed to act, so it brings that authenticity of Shakespeare back into the theatre for your enjoyment. The second half of the show is so jam-packed, it is really a break from the conventional offering and a great treat for fans of literature.
