Subject:    Rare Secret Hamlet Performance In London

A Very Special Chance To See The Factory's HAMLET In London!

After returning from its run at York Theatre Royal, and before taking it 
to Bristol Old Vic later this month, The Factory invite you to a Railway 
Arch in Clapham this coming Sunday to share in a very rare and 
unrepeatable performance of Hamlet.

5 pm
Sunday 11th October 2009
ARCH 635
15 - 16 Lendal Terrace
London, SW4

Directed by Shakespeare's Globe and RSC director Tim Carroll, Hamlet 
will be performed by a cast whose performances will be entirely 
determined by the audience itself!

Each member of the company can play a number of characters. Only moments 
before the beginning of the play will the audience determine which actor 
plays which part.

There are no designated props. Any object that you see on stage or used 
by an actor will come from the audience. It may be a shoe, a phone, a 
inflatable dingy... ANYTHING you can bring in to be used. Audience 
members are encouraged to bring as weird and bold a prop that they can 
think of! (Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for damaged props!)

Featuring a stellar cast, this production began in 2007 and played to 
sold out houses for a year moving secretly around London, playing in as 
many varied spaces as possible, including Shakespeare's Globe, Wilton's 
Music Hall, Hampstead Theatre, The Riverside Studios, Secret Garden 
Party, Hoxton Hall, Budapest's Barka Theatre, The Southwark Playhouse, 
Latitude Festival, Pleasance Theatre, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, Cross Ness 
Pumping Station, derelict office blocks, streets, parks, and car-parks 
for one-off evenings.

[Editor's Note: Again, I missed the appropriate date for posting this 
message. Nevertheless, I think it still deserves to be distributed. From 
all that I have heard, these HAMLET happenings are remarkable theatrical 
events. I wish I were able to attend one performance before it 
disappears, and I would encourage others to be alert to any future 
performances, such as at the Bristol Old Vic 6 pm, Friday, 16th October 
2009 and 2 pm, Sunday, 18th October 2009. See www.factory2009.com  --
