IRELAND: Hamlet Starring David Tennant Airs On RTÉ2 This Morning



A reminder for fans in Ireland that Hamlet, starring David Tennant in the title role, will be shown on RTÉ2 this morning as part of a series of broadcasts aimed at students. RTÉ is to broadcast a series of plays by William Shakespeare to help support Junior and Leaving Certificate students who are studying from home during the current Coronavirus crisis.

Hamlet will be the first play shown in the series and will air today from 11.25am. Other productions to be broadcast on RTÉ2 over the coming weeks 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.
