Learning of the king his father's death, Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his 'foul and most unnatural murder'.
Hamlet encompasses political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humour.
