IRELAND: David Tennant’s Hamlet To Air On RTÉ For Secondary School Students


RTÉ are to broadcast a series of plays by William Shakespeare to help support students who are studying from home during the current Coronavirus crisis. 
The plays are aimed for Junior and Leaving Certificate students and will broadcast on RTÉ2 over the coming weeks.

Hamlet, starring David Tennant in the title role, will be the first play shown in the series and will air on Saturday 11th April at 11.25am on RTÉ2. Other productions will include King Lear, Romeo And Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing. 

All productions will be available on RTÉ Player for 30 days post-broadcast.

About Hamlet:
David Tennant stars in a film of the Royal Shakespeare Company's award-winning production of Shakespeare's great play. Director Gregory Doran's modern-dress production was hailed by the critics as thrilling, fast-moving and, in parts, very funny.
Hamlet must decide whether to avenge his father's murder at the hands of his uncle Claudius (played by Patrick Stewart), who has married his brother's wife - Hamlet's mother, Gertrude. This visually sumptuous screen version was filmed on location with all of the original stage cast.
