The Questors Present
Quietus By Nicholas Jonne Wilson
The extra-ordinary tale of Hamlet
We may all know the story of Hamlet: one of ghosts, deceit, oppressive families and revenge. But this surreal re-imagining of Shakespeare’s most iconic work delves far deeper into the inner workings of a dream, stranger than life itself. Immersing us in a new, spell-binding world, this entrancing production begs the question: what is reality to a mind that is already broken?
Our ensemble cast will take you on a heightened journey of isolation, betrayal, and paranoia. As the lines between dream and reality become blurred, so do the characters - many of whom have a duality to them, made physical by their own ‘dæmons’. Here Hamlet comes face to face with not only his own dæmon, but that of Ophelia’s.
Is this a dream now in the present or a scream from Hamlet's soul for things that happened centuries ago? Mixing the modern with the gothic, the real with the surreal, this exciting and wickedly humorous extra-ordinary tale of Hamlet is sure to keep you guessing.
