520 |a To be, or not to be: that is the question. David Tennant meets fellow actors who've taken on Hamlet and compares notes on how to play a character that's been played, probably, a million different ways. An acclaimed Hamlet in a recent Royal Shakespeare Company production, Tennant looks into the text about the doomed Danish Prince alongside the actors Jude Law, Simon Russell Beale and Ben Whishaw. This is a play made of historical sources and religious wars, existential questions, the meaning of life and death, and the idea that ghosts are real and speak. Tennant also finds that many actors who've played Hamlet share a common experience: deeply and profoundly personal, life changing.
