Hamlet Update: David's Back!

The RSC have issued the following statement today:

Latest news at 3 Jan: David Tennant has made good progress following his recent back operation and began rehearsals yesterday in preparation for his return to the title role in Hamlet. He has rehearsed again today and will perform this evening. Edward Bennett will therefore return to his original role as Laertes, along with Tom Davey, Ricky Champ and Robert Curtis who will play Guildenstern, Lucianus, and Francisco.
We will be assessing David's return to each Hamlet performance next week on a day by day basis. Please check our website www.rsc.org.uk from 12 Noon each day for an update for that evening's performance. Alternatively, please call the RSC Box Office on 0844 800 1114 or the Novello Theatre Box Office on 0844 482 5135. The production ends its run at the Novello Theatre on 10 January.
