    Details

    Blind Hamlet transforms Shakespeare’s tragedy into an interactive theatrical battle and reimagines the bloody struggle for Hamlet’s Elsinore. Volunteers take to the stage to outwit each other as a different power-struggle unfolds at each performance, with Hamlet turned on its head and every spectator now a Player.

    Written by Iran’s leading playwright, Nassim Soleimanpour, Blind Hamlet reveals how nations and individuals trap each other, and themselves, in their frenzy to tell friend from foe.
    Soleimanpour previously wrote the critically-acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, a hit in Edinburgh 2011 and 2013.

    His follow-up Blind Hamlet is produced by Actors Touring Company, winner of a 2013 Fringe First Award with The Events, which was also voted ‘Best Play of 2013’ by critics in The Guardian.
