Don’t worry if you didn’t score in the ballot for London’s hottest ticket this month? Here are first-look photos of Tom Hiddleston in the title role of Kenneth Branagh‘s new, highly sought-after production of Hamlet. The production has a strictly limited three-week run at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts’ 160-seat Jerwood Vanbrugh Theatre from 1-23 September 2017.
The co-production, between Branagh’s theatre company and RADA, is raising funds for the transformation of RADA’s Chenies Street site in London, further developing the Academy as a world-leader in dramatic arts training. Both Branagh and Hiddleston are RADA alumni, graduating in 1981 and 2005 respectively. Branagh took over as the drama school’s president in 2015 after the death of his predecessor, Richard Attenborough.
