After playing to five-star reviews and standing ovations in Europe, America and South Africa, Artscape proudly presents a limited season of Abrahamse & Meyer’s internationally acclaimed Hamlet as part of the 2018 Grade 12 Set Work Season.

The Abrahamse & Meyer production takes its inspiration from one of the earliest recorded performances of Hamlet during Shakespeare’s life-time.

In 1608, off the East Coast of South Africa, the crew of the East India Ship, Red Dragon performed Hamlet aboard their ship.

The production stars Marcel Meyer in the title role, with veteran Shakespearean actor, Michael Richard taking the role of King Claudius. Dean Balie doubles as Polonius and Horatio with Jeremy Richard as Laertes, Matthew Baldwin as Ophelia and Tristan de Beer in the role of Queen Gertrude.
