Maxine Peake HAMLET
(Margaret Williams, 2015)

„A milestone Hamlet“ – Manchester Evening News
„Maxine Peake's performance is fresh, angry, full of oomph“ The Times

Shakespeare’s most iconic work, Hamlet explodes with big ideas and is the ultimate story of loyalty, love, betrayal, murder and madness. From its sell-out run at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre comes a filmed version of this unique and critically acclaimed production of Hamlet, with BAFTA nominee Maxine Peake in the title role. This groundbreaking stage production, directed by Sarah Frankcom, was Royal Exchange’s fastest-selling show in a decade. Hamlet is brought to cinemas by film director Margaret Williams, whose Written on Skin (Royal Opera House/BBC) won many awards including the Diapason d’Or.
