Experience ‘pure theatre gold’ (Mail on Sunday) as the Royal Shakespeare Company’s hotly anticipated world premiere production of Maggie O’Farrell’s HAMNET transfers to London’s Garrick Theatre this autumn following a sell-out run in Stratford-upon-Avon.
‘She’s like no one I’ve ever met… She’s like fire and water all at once.’
Warwickshire, 1582. Agnes Hathaway, a natural healer, meets the Latin tutor, William Shakespeare. Drawn together by powerful but hidden impulses, they create a life together and make a family.
When the plague steals 11-year-old Hamnet from his loving parents, they must each confront their loss alone. And yet, out of the greatest suffering, something of extraordinary wonder is born.
Based on Maggie O’Farrell’s best-selling novel and adapted by award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti (Life of Pi, Red Velvet, Hymn), ‘evocative and beautifully acted’ (The Times) HAMNET pulls back a curtain on the story of the greatest writer in the English language and the woman who was the constant presence and purpose of his life.
Directed by Acting RSC Artistic Director Erica Whyman the ‘evening soars and sears’ (Daily Telegraph). HAMNET is an ‘unbearably moving’ (Daily Mail) love letter to passion, birth, grief and the magic of nature.
