‘To she or not to she? That is the question.’
Given that recently, we’ve had a female Jedi, female Doctor Who and all-women Ghostbusters, the answer to that question is clearly a resounding ‘yes’.
With this in mind, it’s high time that we had a female Hamlet, don’t you think?
If you agree, then get yourself along to Bard in the Botanics’ open-air production of Shakespeare’s classic play this summer, featuring a vengeful Princess of Denmark this time around.
Open-air theatre experience
Taking place at the Botanic Gardens, Bard in the Botanics is Scotland’s biggest Shakespeare festival.
This Big Deal is for one ticket to an innovative outdoor production of Hamlet in the beautiful Botanic Gardens, with a choice of the following dates:
20th, 26th, 27th July

To thine own self be true
You can enjoy this production your way.
As multiple purchases are available, you could either make this a romantic evening with your other half or uber cultured get-together with friends. Plus as the performance is suitable for all ages, it could even be a family outing.
Stools will be available to rent on a first come, first served basis, or you are welcome to bring your own seating or blanket (whichever you choose, don’t forget to pack a picnic).
Last year’s Bard in the Botanics audience had plenty of positive things to say on the festival’s Facebook page. Here are a few comments, shortened for length:
‘Completely captivating. A very timely production, an amazing cast and wonderfully performed… Thank you.’
‘Not the first time at a Bard in the Botanics production and certainly won’t be my last – laughing one minute and close to tears the next. I’m sure The Bard would be proud!’
‘I only discovered Bard in the Botanics three years ago but I’m so glad I did. Looking forward to the rest of this years performances…’
