Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga makes her American theatrical debut in a passionate, critically acclaimed portrayal of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, directed by Yaël Farber and featuring an ensemble of leading Irish actors. Known in the U.S. for her work in film (Loving) and television (Preacher), Negga’s portrayal of Hamlet “shifts from boyish vulnerability to martial ferocity.” (Financial Times) With Farber’s direction, the focus moves from Hamlet’s anguish and identity to the power of resistance against treachery and the raw usurpation of power.
Negga is mesmerizing
—THE TIMES (IRELAND)
Ruth Negga plays the Prince with priceless precision...
Yaël Farber’s Hamlet offers freshly minted thrills...
Negga is an inspired choice as Hamlet – playful, vulnerable, resilient, radiant.
