The presentation of our HD productions—including from Great Britain’s National Theatre Live— is made possible through a generous bequest from the late Dodie Gann and underwriting by the McGee Foundation.

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s SherlockThe Imitation Game) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. 

Now seen by over 750,000 people worldwide, the original 2015 NT Live broadcast returns to cinemas.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.

Directed by Lyndsey Turner (PoshChimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.

Due to a financial agreement with National Theatre Live, no SJCT coupons are accepted for these productions.
