The British Embassy Quito is very pleased to announce the visit of Shakespeare’s Globe on November 6th, to present the play “Hamlet”. This is possible thanks to the support of Teatro Nacional Sucre.

The Globe Theatre is on a world tour that will last two years that serves to mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare.

The production is a young, fresh version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of deferred revenge that teases out its latent streak of gallows humour and celebrates the exuberance and invention of its language. Just twelve actors will perform over two dozen parts on a stripped-down wooden stage in a comparatively brisk two hours and forty minutes.

Tickets are for sale in Teatro Nacional Sucre.
