'So full of artless jealousy is guilt,
that spills itself in fearing to be spilt.'


The King of Denmark is dead. His brother Claudius has married the widowed queen and now sits on the throne. Hamlet Prince of Denmark is sworn to revenge his father's foul and most unnatural murder.

Shakespeare wrote to be heard.

Victorian Theatre Company and Melbourne Shakespeare Company present Hamlet: A Radio Play. Featuring some of Melbourne's most celebrated classical actors, this production takes the listener deep into a sonic world of language, music and atmosphere.
