THE National Theatre Live production of Hamlet featuring Benedict Cumberbatch is to be shown at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan.

Academy Award nominee Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy, which is suitable for ages 12-plus.

Now seen by more than 750,000 people worldwide, the original 2015 NT Live broadcast returns to Theatr Mwldan, on Thursday, October 5 at 7pm.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.

Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, tickets for National Theatre Live screenings are priced £12.50 full price (£11.50 concessions) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, on-line at or via the new MWLDAN app.
