Open Air Shakespeare returns!

Hamlet Website Slider

The Festival Players Theatre Company will return to the stunning Lampeter House on Thursday 18 August to perform William Shakespeare’s’ most famous play, Hamlet, to mark the 400th anniversary of his death.


A small cast of six play multiple roles demanding quick costume changes, as well as performing as singers and musicians. Presented in full costume, an all-male company brings the excitement of this great thriller: intrigue, ghostly visitations, passion, a play-within-a-play, a gripping duel, and humour, in a crystal-clear and fast-paced 2-hour production.
