HamletBenedict Cumberbatch stars in the title role of Hamlet in Lyndsey Turner's production of Shakespeare's tragedy at the Barbican. The story famously follows the son who is compelled to seek revenge for his father's death, yet while his family is falling apart and his country is getting ready for war, his dilemma threatens his sanity. This production of Hamlet, starring the Sherlock actor as the Danish prince, is one of the most hotly anticipated London theatre shows of 2015 and tickets - on public sale on Monday 11th August 2014 at 10am - are sure to sell out quickly. It's not only the Olivier award winning actor who has proven success, director Lyndsey Turner has worked on Posh for the Royal Court and Chimerica at the Almeida, both productions which have transferred to the West End.
