Modern-day Hamlet at Little Theatre

25 May 2009

UCT's Drama Department, in association with Yawazzi Theatre Productions, is staging an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet at the Little Theatre from 16 to 30 May.

For Hamlet, the department, together with the third-year drama students, has teamed up with Sanjin Mufti_ (director) and Jon Keevy (designer) from Yawazzi.

Mufti and Keevy, both UCT master's graduates, set up Yawazzi and have already made their names as leading artists in multimedia theatre in Cape Town.

Hamlet promises audiences a spectacular visual and oral journey in search of 'the Hamlet within'.

The adaptation, working on the idea of multiple Hamlets, tells of inner conflict, power struggles, critical choices, and ultimately, consequence.

It's still Shakespeare, but Shakespeare redefined for our time. Contact the Little Theatre at 021 480 7128 or 084 395 8381 for bookings and more information.
