First images of Ruth Negga as Hamlet (Gate Theater Dublin, 27 Sept-13 Oct 2018)
“Negga is a princely Hamlet, full of gracious entitlement, capricious
and deeply wounded. This is a gruelling performance; three-and-a-half
hours, with Hamlet on stage most of the time, other than a brief respite
in Act Four.
Negga combines vulnerability and ruthlessness, her tiny frame
asserting its dominance of the action throughout by theatrical force of
will. She brings a freshness to these oh-so-familiar speeches. “ (x)
