Scarborough's Stephen Joseph Theatre joins in the celebrations to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare with productions of Hamlet and All's Well That Ends Well. 

Probably the most famous play in the world, Hamlet brings together politics, madness, sex and murder in a drama that is regarded as much a thriller as it is a profound meditation on the human condition. It can be seen from Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 May.

In All’s Well That Ends Well, a young woman, using skills bequeathed to her by her father, saves the French king’s life and is rewarded with the right to choose her own husband. It can be seen on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 May.

The productions come courtesy of Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory and Tobacco Factory Theatres. A single cast of 15 actors will perform the two plays.
