Special version of Hamlet to be shown on the Isle of Wight this weekend

Theatre lovers visiting the Isle of Wight will be in for a treat this weekend as a production of Hamlet will be put on.

Indeed, the curtain will raise on one of William Shakespeare's greatest plays on Friday (August 23rd) and it will likely attract locals and anyone taking a caravan holiday in the area.

Held at the beautiful and atmospheric Chale Church, this tale of woe and revenge will certainly go down well with the audience as it so often does. The Isle of Wight has been fortunate enough to see some of the best plays in the UK in recent time and it they keep on coming thick and fast.

What's more there will also be a little event beforehand offering a wide range of great food.

It will be held at the luxurious Chale Bay Farm, which has some fantastic views towards the Needles. There will be a quality two course buffet and if weather permits there's also a barbecue planned on the terrace.

Of course, there will also be wine available so theatregoers can relax and let their hair down.

The banquet at the farm takes place at 18:00 and after it is complete there will be a short stroll to the church to see the specially abridged version of Hamlet. This alone will be superb as the Isle of Wight has some of the best views and walking routes in the UK.

Original Theatre have reduced the play from four and a half hours to 90 minutes, while retaining all the beauty of the language.

Tickets will surely sell out quickly so people should get in quick if they want to see the play. They cost £18 per person and include the event at Chale Bay Farm beforehand.

This is a great way to ease into the bank holiday weekend and will be a great start for everyone involved. Hopefully the sun stays out over the period so people can enjoy everything the island has to offer.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801628394-ADNFCR
