The king is dead; long live the king. Only in this instance, the new ruthless ruler of this fictional contemporary Middle Eastern country is the former king's brother. He has not only taken the throne, but also married his brother's widow, and is setting about creating a more westernised state. Not everyone is happy about this. The playboy prince, called back from gallivanting his way across Europe, is in a sulk; a neighbouring country is amassing troops on the border, and an internal opposition group is distributing leaflets suggesting that the death of the previous king was foul play. Sound familiar? It is more than that. Kuwaiti playwright Sulayman Al-Bassam's reworking of Shakespeare's play "is a brilliantly simple theatrical conjuring trick that has Elsinore fitting a current day state." (The Guardian)

This is Hamlet (played in English) as you've never seen before. An explosive reworking and contemporisation of Shakespeare's classic directed and produced by Padraig Downey for Danú Dubai: the award winning Dubai based theatre group who recently brought a sold-out Middle Eastern Adaptation of A Doll's House to the stage with major success.
