We are in Denmark, and Hamlet's father, the king, is now dead. Hamlet's uncle has married Hamlet’s mother, and become the new king. A ghost appears, saying he is the dead king, and tells Hamlet he must take revenge.

‘To be, or not to be; that is the question’... says Hamlet, as he wonders whether it is better to be alive or dead. Shakespeare's most performed play makes us think about this and other big philosophical questions.


Is it easy to sympathise with the character of Hamlet?

Hi Helbest,


Thanks for letting us know. I've just tested it and it's working fine for me. Are you using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or another browser? Try using a different browser and see if that works.
