Hamlet: CyberMadness

Town Hall Theatre

Cyclone’s newest production of Hamlet continues our mission to make the works of Shakespeare relevant for young audiences. In Shakespeare’s day, many mental health problems were simply labeled as ‘Madness’, a key theme in Hamlet. In this production we propose young Hamlet’s 'madness' is fuelled by his addiction to smartphone technology, resulting in anxiety, paranoia, feelings of isolation and depression.

Hamlet:CyberMadness will showcase great performances, enlightening discussions and the use of modern technology for an innovative take on this timeless classic that connects with students by bringing Hamlet and Shakespeare’s language into their world and times.

This show has been made possible with the support of the HSE Lottery Grant Award
