This hotly anticipated West End transfer turns the pages of theatrical history and invites you into the life of one of the greatest writers to have ever lived. Hamnet is the untold story of a natural healer named Agnes Hathaway, her Latin tutor, William Shakespeare, and the son they lost to the plague aged only eleven. How did this tragedy shape the future of this couple and what impact would it have on history’s greatest theatrical legacy?
Maggie O’Farrell’s award-winning novel is skilfully adapted for the stage by Lolita Chakrabarti, whose adaptation of Life of Pi has seen phenomenal success across the UK. After a sell-out season at the RSC’s Swan Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Hamnet comes to the Garrick Theatre in London for a strictly limited 14-week season.
A powerful story of passion, love, grief and creativity, Hamnet is a play that epitomises the magic of theatre to move, heal and inspire. Don't miss this extraordinary production in the West End this year.
