Shakespeare's greatest play explores the mental struggles that threaten to overcome Hamlet as tries to make sense of his father's death, only to find that his mother has hastily married his father's brother.

The ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his 'foul and most unnatural murder'.

As the country arms itself for war Hamlet's mind is set only on revenge... threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.

Note: the Globe's theatre season runs from April to October. Craig has been to watch a play at the Globe himself and thoroughly recommends it because it's not like any other theatre you've ever seen -- it's all open-air, for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle (called 'The Yard'). The actors sometimes parade through this yard during the scenes, and end up involving the crowd as if they were part of the cast. Read Craig's review of watching a play at the Globe before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
