Blind Hamlet

Wed 30 Jul 2014

When the future starts looking black, what would you do? Travel the world? Reconnect with your family? Take up a new hobby?

In Blind Hamlet, Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour confronts the slow loss of his sight and the fact that he's never read Hamlet. But with tragedy looming, he chooses instead to play with the truth and fiction, chance and fate. A surprise-laden meditation on what it means to act and interact in a shrinking world, Blind Hamlet is theatre about choices in which the audience chooses. 

Actors Touring Company won a 2013 Fringe First Award with their show The Events, which was also voted 'Best Play of 2013' by critics in The Guardian.
