Astana, Kazakhstan

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Dominic Dromgoole and Bill Buckhurst

Designed by Jonathan Fensom

To mark our 20th anniversary in Kazakhstan and the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth, the British Council with support from Shell, Air Astana and the Kazakh National University of Arts are bringing to Astana a production of Hamlet by the world renowned Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. Performances will take place at the Kazakh National University of Arts - "Shabyt" Palace of Arts on 27 and 28 September.

The performance is a part of a two-year global tour that will aim to take Hamlet to every country in the world. The Globe to Globe Hamlet, directed by the Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole, is a completely unprecedented theatrical adventure. 

The production is a young, fresh version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of deferred revenge that teases out its latent streak of gallows humour and celebrates the exuberance and invention of its language. Just twelve actors will perform over two dozen parts on a stripped-down wooden stage in a comparatively brisk two hours and forty minutes.
