Blue Cow Theatre present

Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

Hobart, Tasmania

Audience Reaction:
‘A beautiful, patient, harrowing Hamlet at the Bond Store tonight. (The cast) … made a small space feel large, and a grand story feel intimate. Huge contrast Robert Jarman and team… here’s hoping a biennial Blue Cow Shakespeare in some part of the Museum becomes a tradition’ Finegan Kruckemeyer, playwright, author

‘Just witnessed a sublime piece of theatre with a stellar ensemble. Under Robert Jarman’s direction Hamlet was given breath, as the audience held theirs. I gasped at the rawness and honesty of Scott Farrow’s riveting performance. The complexity of grief laid bare, the dance of death’. Sue Hayes, actor
