Review of Hamnet, by Dead Centre, Purcell Room, Southbank Centre, 27 May 2018
What is it about?
Hamnet is a one-hour play about the ill-fated son of William Shakespeare. The play explores the boy's relation to and influence on his father.
Why is it important?
The play, although purely speculative, looks at Shakespeare's life and work from the perspective of a child, in this case his son Hamnet, twin to Judith, who died at age 11.
