Tennant Reprises Hamlet

The BBC has announced that David Tennant, Patrick Stewart and all key cast from the 2008 RSC production of Hamlet will be reunited to record the Shakespeare classic for posterity.

This is the culmination of a long campaign to have the production recorded folloing realisation of how popular it had been and how it could be used to increase awareness and learning of Shakespeare in schools.

RSC Patron Margaret Best began the campaign to have the Tennant Hamlet recorded for DVD release.

A DVD would enable them to enjoy the experience that a privileged few were able to partake in. We hope the expressions of interest below will be instrumental in assisting in the decision to go ahead with this project.

BBC Two controller Janice Hadlow describes the 180-minute screen production of Hamlet as

“a wonderful opportunity… to bring one of the great stage successes of last year to a wider audience”.
