Competition: Win a DVD copy of ‘Hamlet’, starring Maxine Peake


Starring Maxine Peake

Directed by Sarah Frankcom

Maxine Peake as HAMLET, the film of Sarah Frankcom’s acclaimed stage production of HAMLET at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, is out now on DVD and digital platforms.

Shown in over 300 UK cinemas, the film received 4 and 5 star reviews, and regularly played to sell-out audiences – as did the original theatre production.

Filmed with eight cameras by an expert team, the film captures the intensity of the stage production with all the polish and care of a feature film. 

The strong, poignant production depicts intense family drama and the power of grief. Maxine Peake’s fierce and textured Hamlet imbues the role with anger, indignation and purpose.



To celebrate, we have 3 x DVD copies of the release to give away courtesy of our friends at Spirit Entertainment.

To enter, fill out the following form with ‘Hamlet’ in the subject line, including your full name, address and contact number.
