The first British-Asian Hamlet makes the bard popular

26th January 2011



The first British-Asian Hamlet talks to Suman Bhuchar about making his Shakespearean debut in the RSC’s 70-minute young people’s version of the play, which is touring Britain and will arrive at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in February. Recorded at the Roundhouse, where he is also playing in the RSC’s The Comedy of Errors and As You Like It.

When I was at school I despised Shakespeare because we had to sit at a table and just read him. He really needs to be performed!
