Gyles Brandreth interview - 'This Hamlet is like Virginia Woolf in 90 minutes'

Gyles Brandreth

As it opens at the Park Theatre, we caught up with the Brandreth's who are performing condensed, three actor production of Hamlet. 

Gyles's son Benet, also a barrister and author, will play the Dane, whilst his father, a former Member of Parliament, and wife, the actress Kosha Engler, will both take on four characters each. 

Directed by Simon Evans and David Alua, the production will condense the scenes down into a neat 90-minute version of Shakespeare's play. 

Hamlet runs at the Park Theatre until 16th September. 

 

Looking for the best seats...
