The RSC to adapt Hamnet in 2023

We were thrilled with the news that the Royal Shakespeare Company are staging the Women’s Prize-winning novel Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell. Adapted by award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti (Life of PiRed Velvet, Hymn), it will open in April 2023.

Hamnet pulls back a curtain on the imagined family life of the greatest writer in the English language, and it won the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2020. 

Now is the perfect time to delve back into Maggie’s world and read Hamnet! Find out more about the book here.
