Is it the end of the world? Or simply a thanksgiving dinner? Delightful, chilling and unique, Action hasn't been seen in London for 25 years.

The Tragedy of Hamlet , directed by Peter Brook. (22nd Aug to 8th Sep 01 in the Main theatre). The Young Vic presents the only UK performances of this remarkable production. 'Hamlet is inexhaustible, limitless. Each decade brings with it new explanations, fresh interpretations. Yet Hamlet remains intact, a fascinating enigma. But our task is not one of finding new ways of staging an old play. This adaptation seeks to prune away the inessential, for beneath the surface lies a myth. This is the mystery that we will attempt to explore.' Peter Brook.
