Hamlet

No CPTV Airdates Currently Scheduled (Check Listings)

Shakespeare’s immortal “To be, or not to be” takes on a whole new meaning (and medium) as classical stage and screen actors Sir Patrick Stewart, in his Laurence Olivier Award-winning turn as Claudius, and David Tennant, as the titular Dane, reprise their roles in this television adaptation of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2008 stage production of Hamlet. Gregory Doran directs, recreating his stage direction in the film shot at St. Joseph’s College in Mill Hill, London.
