Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman

This show has three striking features.. Al-Bassam’s astonishing text, which rarely echoes Shakespeare’s words, but takes the story of Hamlet and reworks it in a rich new poetic version… the show uses video and projected images in a seriously effective and disturbing way… its story of Hamlet’s progression from dumb Oedipal rage to cold-eyed religious fundamentalism is chilling and utterly credible.
