Tickets have gone on sale for Theatre Royal’s inaugural Summer Season opening with Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Starring Britain’s favorite actor – Ian McKellen – in an age-blind interpretation of the young Prince with integrated casting, opens at the Theatre Royal Windsor on 21 June 2021.
Produced by Bill Kenwright, Hamlet heralds Sean Mathias’ inaugural season at Theatre Royal Windsor and will be followed by Martin Sherman’s adaptation of Anton Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard, with McKellen as Firs the elderly manservant.
The production actually went into rehearsal ten months ago but could not proceed when new restrictions were put in place due to the UK’s second wave of COVID-19. Rehearsals will start again next week, with strict measures remaining in place to ensure the safety of the company.
