Blind Hamlet - Audience Reactions

ATC's Blind Hamlet

When the future starts looking black, what would you do? Travel the world? Reconnect with your family? Take up a new hobby? In Blind Hamlet, Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour confronts the slow loss of his sight and the fact that he’s never read Hamlet. But with tragedy looming, he chooses instead to play with the truth and fiction, chance and fate. A surprise-laden meditation on what it means to act and interact in a shrinking world, Blind Hamlet is theatre about choices in which the audience chooses. This new play from Actors Touring Company, the UK’s pre-eminent international touring theatre company, was written by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour who is best known for his work White Rabbit, Red Rabbit. ATC's premiere production of Blind Hamlet has been developed with support from the British Council and the Iran Heritage Foundation. www.atctheatre.com

The Events at the Southbank Centre

ATC's The Events: Official Trailer (with stars)

'Screams echo through corridors. A forest echoes with the sound of gunfire. At Claire's choir rehearsal, something terrible happens.' David Greig's daring new play asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity. Featuring local choirs and a soaring soundtrack, The Events tells of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable. Commissioned by Actors Touring Company and directed by its artistic director Ramin Gray, this is a major new work exploring themes of community and the ability to heal.
