Subject: Benedict Cumberbatch set for Hamlet debut

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/05/15 at 10:35 am

There's sure to be much excitement at the Barbican in London later, where Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is set to make his first appearance as Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Tickets for Lyndsey Turner's hotly anticipated production sold out in minutes when they went on sale last year and are reportedly changing hands now for eye-watering sums.

The Barbican, though, is keen to avoid tickets being resold by touts and may conduct ID spot checks to ensure they were acquired through proper channels.

It's also been reported that Cumberbatch - pictured above at the Wimbledon men's singles final with father Timothy - will be making use of the venue's many different entrances and exits in order to evade selfie seekers and autograph hunters.

Hamlet will have its official opening night on 25 August.
