Recent history and Elizabethan drama overlap in a unique fusion of theatre and legal trial. Real-life barristers, a judge, other legal professionals and a “jury” formed by the audience will take part in a “trial” of Hamlet for the murder of Polonius. The unscripted and interactive play by Roger Bernat and Yan Duyvendak awakens the audience’s sense of ethics, drawing them to realise how difficult it is to judge someone and giving them insight into how justice is administered.
