Review of the young version of Hamlet at The Old Vic: "But if this messy-haired Hamlet is most convincingly a student - (Ben) Whishaw seems constantly to be pulling up his pants as if it would be uncool to wear a belt - he's in sympathy with a production that will probably resonate most with students. Others may miss the maturity and/or nobility that such older Hamlets as Tony winner Ralph Fiennes have brought to the part."

The William Shakespeare Weblog is looking for contributions. If you want to comment or follow-up on something which has been mentioned or you have something which you think might of interest to readers please get in touch. We would particularly like to hear from anyone connected with a production of one of Will's plays for a prospective diary feature. Above all else Shakespeare's words are as relevant now as then and its important for this weblog to reflect that.
