Dead Centre’s new solo work for an eleven -year-old boy is devoted to Shakespeare’s only son, Hamnet, who died in 1596, only eleven himself. A single letter separates Hamnet from the philosophical heights of Hamlet. Unlike the Prince, he cannot ask ‘to be or not to be’. Condemned not to be, he now seeks to understand the world from which he has been wrested. Hamnet is too young to understand Shakespeare. We are too old to understand Hamnet. Two generations, asking each other what they want to pass on and receive.

A high-quality summary of Maggie O'Farrell´s book Hamnet, including chapter details and analysis of the main themes of the original book. About the original book: England, 1580: The Black Death spreads over the country, posing a constant threat to the healthy, sick, elderly, and young equally. The end of the world is approaching, yet life continues on. A young Latin tutor falls in love with an unusual, quirky young woman despite being impoverished and being harassed by his abusive father. Agnes is a wild creature that travels her family's farm with a falcon on her glove and is well-known across the countryside for her extraordinary healing abilities, knowing plants and potions better than people. She becomes a passionately protective mother and a staunch, centrifugal force in the life of her young husband, whose career on the London stage is only getting started when his adored little son succumbs to a severe fever once they have settled on Henley Street in Stratford-upon-Avon.
