RSC Announces HAMNET Adapted by Lolita Chakrabarti

Adaptation of Maggie O’Farrell’s novel will premiere at Swan theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 2023

‘She’s like no one I’ve ever met… She’s like fire and water all at once.’

Adapted by award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti (Life of PiRed Velvet, Hymn), HAMNET pulls back a curtain on the imagined family life of the greatest writer in the English language. HAMNET is a love letter to passion, birth, grief and the magic of nature. This spring, we invite you to meet William and Agnes and their family, here in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Join the RSC for the world premiere directed by Acting Artistic Director, Erica Whyman, which reopens the stunning Swan Theatre for the first time in more than three years, after being beautifully restored and renovated. 

Priority booking has already begun. Non members can book their tickets from November 29th:
