An event every day that begins at 11:00, repeating until Friday 5th May, 2023


Featuring a cast of young people from Kildare schools who are studying the play. They are joined by young volunteers from abroad, making it a truly multicultural production.

Kildare Youth Theatre is a project of Crooked House Theatre Company. Each May we stage a play by Shakespeare, usually the text that is prescribed for current 5th years for their Leaving Certificate.

This production emphasises the zealous nature of Hamlet’s quest to be the ‘scourge and minister’ of the age. He is a fundamentalist, bent on setting the world ‘right’ and damning Claudius’ soul to Hell. In this sense, Hamlet really is mentally ill, and not in the way that he pretends to be.

Directed by Peter Hussey
