Now seen by over 750,000 people worldwide, the original 2015 NT Live broadcast returns to King’s Theatre. Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game) in the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
