Gregory Thompson directs Hamlet in Nepal

Hamlet in Nepali performed by Nepalese artists premiered in front of 3000 people at Kathmandu’s main public square on 13 October 2015. The production will be presented at Alchemy 2016 in May.

Gregory Thompson spent just three weeks in Nepal directing a Nepalese Hamlet, working with a local translator, local artists and director Bimal Subedi from Theatre Village, Kathmandu. The production connected the story of Hamlet with the Nepalese royal massacre fifteen years ago. It was performed the day before the Globe’s Hamlet to 3000 people in Kathmandu’s main public square. Both the shows were planned as part of the yearlong celebration of 200 years of bilateral relations between Britain and Nepal. This also formed British Council Nepal's celebration of Shakespeare's life and works as part of Shakespeare Lives, a global programme of international events and activities in 2016, marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and exploring the work of the world’s most popular playwright in all cultures.
