York International Shakespeare Festival

The Diagnosis: Hamlet

On Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 May, performances of The Diagnosis: Hamlet will be taking place in the Memorial Hall at 7.30pm.

The performance is created through a combination of visual imagery, film, puppetry and emotionally-charged acting.

Please be aware that this performance contains some adult themes.

The Diagnosis: Hamlet

Max wants to be Hamlet. He wants Shakespeare to make decisions for him, speak for him, liberate him from his pain and his fear through the words of his most complex and analyzed characters. Because of this, day after day, he recreates the illusion of the life as a producer, encouraging and controlling his nightmares as a puppeteer. But the brain is perverse and sooner or later we must face the great truth: life is uncertainty.

The performance is to be presented in Spanish with English subtitles.

This event is part of the York International Shakespeare Festival, which is taking place from Friday 8 – Sunday 17 May.
