Exploded Hamlet Rides Again

Exploded Hamlet Rides Again

Alex spent last week at Notre Dame University in Indiana on a two part project involving further development on Believe None of Us and introducing the Citizens’ Theatre Company to Shakespeare in Prison practitioners from around the world.  Supported by Creative Scotland, Alex travelled with Elly Goodman and Neil Packham to the joint conferences for the Shakespeare in Prisons Network and the Shakespeare Theatre Association.  Alongside all kinds of other conference activity, Alex and the Believe None of Us team undertook a bit of further development and presented another sharing of the piece for delegates of the conference.  Feedback was phenomenal.  Paul Smith, director of the British Council USA called it

The most extraordinary side-glance at Hamlet I’ve seen since watching Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead for the first time.

The team were pretty pleased with that.  So pleased, in fact, that they formed the theatre collective Runamuck, and are now working on the next stages of taking the piece to full production.  In all it was a pretty fantastic trip.
