DUE to box office demand, a week of extra performances have gone on sale for the Royal Exchange Theatre’s production of Hamlet.

The production, which features acclaimed actress Maxine Peake in the title role, opens next Thursday, September 11, and will now run until October 25.

More than 24,000 people have already booked seats to see what has become the theatre’s fastest-selling show in a decade.

In Shakespeare’s most iconic play, Hamlet’s father is dead and Denmark has crowned a new king. Consumed by grief, Hamlet struggles to exact revenge with devastating consequences.

Tickets are on sale for the extra nights from the Royal Exchange box office on 0161 833 9833 or online at royalexchange.co.uk/hamlet
