The first rehearsal photos have been released, showing new dad Benedict Cumberbatch hard at work at the Barbican, with the rest of the cast of Hamlet.
You can see a full gallery of at the Guardian, with loving annotation of the various cast members—including Ciarán Hinds, Anastasia Hille, Sian Brooke, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Jim Norton and Leo Bill—but as you can see from these shots, Lyndsey Turner is putting together a pretty physical interpretation of Shakespeare’s tragedy.
Hamlet runs from 5 August to 31 October 2015, and is currently sold out, although there will be a daily allocation of tickets priced at £10 each.
Failing that, Hamlet will also be broadcast in the UK, US and across Europe on October 15.
