Ruth Negga To Return To Dublin Stage

The Irish actress is to play Hamlet at a production planned for later this year at the Dublin's Gate.

When asked about casting Ruth in this production, director Yaël Farberresponded: “Ruth Negga’s profound gifts as an artist, combined with her meticulously observed and felt sense of the world around her, hold the promise for a Hamlet I believe most needed now."

He also described her as "a Hamlet for our time”.

The production will run for six weeks from September 21, 2018 and rehearsals will begin in Dublin in August. Hamlet will be part of the 2018 Dublin Theatre Festival.

The return of Ruth Negga to the Irish stage is an exciting development in a stellar acting career. She will be joined by some of Ireland’s greatest actors including Fiona Bell, Gavin Drea, Nick Dunning , Aoife Duffin, Mark Huberman, Gerard Kelly, Conor Madden, Barry McKiernan, Owen Roe and Gerard Walsh.

Tony award winning American set and costume designer Susan Hilferty will collaborate with Yael on this ground-breaking production, alongside lighting designer Paul Keogan composer Tom Lane and textual consultant Ben Power.
