This weekend is the last chance to catch the Changeling Theatre’s Hamlet in the county.
The final weekend of the summer touring production of Shakespeare’s enduring tale of human mortality and struggle, is at Boughton Monchelsea Place in Maidstone.
It is back where the six-week tour of Kent started, to mark the Changeling Theatre’s 20th anniversary.
The weekend will include a special BSL signed performance at 5pm on Sunday, August 13, in association with deaf charity Hi Kent.
This production features sign language throughout, with some of the characters speaking and signing their lines.
Speaker/signer Brandon Plummer was cast as Rosencrantz, and he taught other actors to sign too.
Artistic director Rob Forknall said: “The positive feedback from audiences throughout our Hamlet tour has been overwhelming. Audiences have been enjoying the cast who sign throughout. Sign language makes the performance more interesting, as well as more inclusive. And it adds a new dimension to the interpretation of the text, helping the actors express to the audience. Audiences have been asking us why we’ve included it. My answer is simply: ‘why not?’”
The show will be at Boughton Monchelsea Place from Friday, August 11 to Sunday, August 13. To book tickets, visit changeling-theatre.com/tickets
