Peter Brook, one of the world's finest theatre directors, is returning to Warwick Arts Centre in June with his production of Shakespeare's Hamlet.
The former artistic director of the RSC is presenting a French adaptation of the classic play, performed by his Paris-based Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord. The performance will be the only opportunity this year to see La Tragédie d'Hamlet in the UK. The production comes to Warwick after an international tour including venues in Venice, Rio de Janeiro, Gdansk, Milan and Paris.
Warwick Arts Centre Director Alan Rivett commented; "Our passion is to present the best theatre in the world on a human scale. Where else should one seek this out but from Peter Brook? I'm delighted that the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord has chosen to visit Warwick Arts Centre with La Tragédie d?Hamlet. Shakespeare speaks to us all in this universal text. I hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to see this great play fashioned by a great theatre director."
Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord previously visited Warwick Arts Centre in 2001 with their hugely successful Le Costume.
La Tragédie d?Hamlet is performed in French with English surtitles. Performances are running from Wednesday 11 June to Saturday 14 June.
More information about the performance and ticket availability can be found on the Warwick Arts Centre website.
