Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Presented in the Studio Season.  Our studio stage is created by re-setting our main hall, offering an intimate performance space.

Written and performed by George Dillon

For twenty years George Dillon has been wowing audiences and winning awards for his solo shows, and The Man Who Was Hamlet is another superbly crafted piece of theatre, receiving several 5 star reviews in Edinburgh.

 “One of the most compelling performances I have seen … a lesson in the art of acting.”  Steven Berkoff

"***** Truly masterly... amazing... electrifying… wicked!”  FringeReview.co.uk

The play tells the comical, tragical and utterly scandalous history of the controversial figure who some believe was the true 'William Shake-speare' - Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford.

If you are interested in theatre, literature, history or just great story-telling, and you haven’t heard of Edward de Vere or George Dillon, The Man Who Was Hamlet is a ‘must see’ show!

“***** Transporting, subtle, spellbinding and human... It's very cleverly done... a fascinating play!”  FringeGuru.com

“***** Excellent... worth seeing both as education and entertainment.”  BroadwayBaby.com
