Hamlet & All’s Well That Ends Well

2016

Hamlet & All’s Well That Ends Well

Directed by Andrew Hilton

A co-production with Tobacco Factory Theatres

To celebrate ‘Shakespeare 400’ – four centuries since the great playwright died, stf is offering the most famous play in world theatre in repertoire with All’s Well That Ends Well.

As an actor I have played in Hamlet many times, but this is my first production, fulfilling a lifelong ambition. All’s Well That Ends Well is a very different challenge but makes an excellent partner; it is a play brimming with the kind of ambiguity of tone that I relish, as well as offering terrific parts for women (to whom the play really belongs), and some fine comedy.’
Andrew Hilton, Artistic Director, Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory
