ArtsEmerson Presents:
HAMNET - Dead Centre

Emerson Paramount Center
Robert J. Orchard Stage
559 Washington St., Boston

September 20 - October 7, 2018

William Shakespeare had one son: Hamnet, who died at age eleven before he got to know his famous father. In this riveting tour-de-force of literary imagination, Shakespeare's only son finally takes center stage. Created by Dead Centre Theatre Company in Dublin, Hamnet is a moving, meticulous, multimedia show that explores how ambition clashes with family responsibilities in a way that rivals Shakespearean tragedy itself.

This U.S. Premiere of Hamnet at ArtsEmerson is a final chance to see young Irish actor Ollie West perform as the 11 year old lead character. West performs September 20-30 after which we'll welcome the talented Aran Murphy to take over the role for the final four performances October 3-7.

Thanks to our friends at ArtsEmerson, we’re happy to be offering a pair of free tickets over two weekends. The first choice is for the show either on Friday, September 28 at 8pm, Saturday, September 29 at 8:00 pm or Sunday, September 30 at 2:00 pm. We'll announce the winner of that contest on Wednesday, September 26th.

The second choice is either the show on Saturday, October 6 at 8:00 pm or Sunday October 7 at 2:00 pm. We’ll announce this second winner on Thursday, October 4, so be sure to check back for the winning announcements!
