(1user review)
A method-focused company of actors from New York's Lee Strasberg Institute, the Ouroboros Players aim to present Shakespeare in a 'vibrant and accessible way' (who doesn't?). Here, they update the tale of the Danish prince cursed by indecision to the swinging sixties.

First time at The Drayton Arms to see any production. I found this Hamlet to be fresh, lively and provocative. The small audience are so close to the actors & I thought many of the actors adapted well to that, often addressing lines direct to an individual in the first or second row of seats. I thought Harry Kerr's Hamlet was excellent. Perhaps more of the madness than others I have seen but I thought it worked. I remember studying Hamlet at school 35 years ago for English A level & so wish I could have seen this production then. A breath of fresh air.
