28TH OF MAY – 18th of JUN
It’s Paris in 1899 and Sarah Bernhardt is one of the world's favourite actors. She has her own theatre, but with money tight, she needs a ground-breaking show to get her out of debt. Bernhardt has had enough of playing divas and damsels in distress she has her heart set on playing Hamlet. Of Course, it being 1899 this is seen as an absolute scandal but can Bernhardt’s plan actually work? Bernhardt/ Hamlet is playing at the Billie Brown Théâtre for a limited time so get in quick.
