On the 18th of June the Globe Theatre is coming to Honiara to preform Shakespeare’s Hamlet as part of Globe to Globe Hamlet.
To mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, the Globe to Globe project began a two year tour in April 2014, to perform the production in every country around the world. Sixteen extraordinary men and women are currently travelling across the seven continents, performing in a huge range of unique and atmospheric venues. They have so far preformed Hamlet in 96 countries across the Americas, Europe and Africa to more than 76,000 people, with a half of the whole tour now complete.
In Solomon Islands, the production is being held at the Auditorium, National Museum Ground. Tickets are now on sale from the National Museum Craft Shop and the Culture Department Office. Prices are $50.00 per adult and $20.00 per child. The performance starts at 20:00 (8pm).
Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe and Director of Hamlet said:
‘Globe to Globe Hamlet was created with the aim of performing Hamlet to as many people as possible, in as diverse a range of places as possible. The central principle of the tour is that Shakespeare can entertain and speak to anyone, no matter where they are on earth; and that no country or people are not better off for the lively presence of Hamlet.’
