Hamlet is Dead. No Gravity

Arcola Theatre
UK Premiere

In HAMLET IS DEAD. NO GRAVITY, Mülheimer prize-winning playwright Ewald Palmetshofer weaves a darkly comic tale about a dysfunctional family trying to hide a terrible secret. Staged by Andrea Ferran as part of VOLTA Festival at the Arcola Theatre, Palmetshofer’s playful and inventive masterwork was hailed as ‘an explosion…stunning and not to be missed’ (Huffington Post).

"The whole combination of text, direction, performances, design, lighting and sound makes this production feel absolutely outstanding. Sure, it’s nice to see a hidden gem, but, Christ, don’t miss it."
