Hamlet on a Sunday

If you’ve a spare tenner next weekend get your ass along to The Factory theatre company’s Hamlet. It takes place in a different London venue each week with cast members playing different characters. There are no props other than those provided by the audience, which on my visit yesterday included a barbie doll, sponge, mop, water cooler bottles, a glow stick, a giant leek and rubber chickens, among other things. I took along a recorder which ended up being Hamlet’s sword.

It was a really engaging couple of hours – I spent the whole time on the edge of my (constantly moving) seat.

More praise:
