When the plague steals 11-year-old Hamnet from his loving parents, Agnes and William, they must each confront their loss alone. And yet, out of the greatest suffering, something of extraordinary wonder is born.
This hotly anticipated new play based on Maggie O’Farrell’s best-selling novel, adapted by award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti and directed by Royal Shakespeare Company Acting Artistic Director Erica Whyman, transfers direct from Stratford-upon-Avon to London’s Garrick Theatre for 14 weeks only from 30 September 2023.
Madeleine Mantock gave a riveting performance as Agnes Hathaway holding the whole performance together. All the other actors were excellent too. I was moved at various points...
