About The Play
A ghostly visitor with a shocking secret. A daughter devastated by loss. A world turned upside down by betrayal, mistrust and calculated madness. A performance, and one man’s relentless pursuit of the truth. Rulers, servants and a dysfunctional Danish family. Friendships, rivalries and traps. False loyalties and ill-fated love. A deadly duel, revenge – and murder.

Hillbark Players return in 2017 with a boldly atmospheric and compelling production of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy. Grand in scope and rich in language, and including a surprising streak of humour, this iconic play is the original – and undoubtedly the best – Scandinavian drama, and includes one of the most famous questions of all time.

About The Company
As well as being a unique part of Wirral’s cultural heritage, Hillbark Players have become the longest established open-air Shakespeare company in the North West. Beneath midsummer skies in the magical setting of Royden Park, come join them for an unforgettable evening of classic Shakespearian entertainment!

“A great night out, where Shakespeare’s work remains as it was for the original audience – a living event”

VIP Package available
Please select VIP tickets in Stand B
With the best seats in the house, a complimentary programme, indulge in Prosecco and canapes (this year served before the show and during the interval) served in our bespoke VIP tent; or simply treat your family to an outing they’ll never forget. Whatever the occasion, our VIP experiences will make you feel centre-stage.

Weather Policy
Every theatre performance is unique, but this is especially the case with Open Air Theatre.
On rare occasions, it will not be possible for us to complete the performance, but we will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time. This is because you would be amazed how often it can rain all day and then clear up just in time for the action to start and indeed, how localised bad weather can be. Also we really don’t want to disappoint anyone – audiences or our actors (who are always keen to perform, if at all possible).

In the event of a performance being cancelled or abandoned due to inclement weather, or any other circumstances beyond the control of Hillbark Players, no refund will be made. Tickets cannot be exchanged for other performances or returned for resale.
