moments, this is no ordinary production. Stripped of the politics
and side-shows, yet faithful to Shakespeare’s vision, the play’s raw
passions are laid bare.
‘The condensed Hamlet: Cut to the Bone is thoroughly clear. …Actor
David Keller has great authority. **** The Scotsman
‘This performance is a really top class example of how Shakespeare
should be done.’ The Edinburgh Guide
