Hamlet

The Windsor Theatre Company’s 1200th production.

The theatre’s contribution to 1973’s Festival of British Theatre, it was included in the season in the expectation of making a £3000 loss. In fact, it lost £6000. (‘The Arts Scene: Shakespeare’s bad for business…’, Reading Evening Post 13th October 1973.)

    On the occasion I saw this play, owing to the indisposition of George Benson, the part of Polonius was played by Martin Jenkins.
