The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will be putting on the world-premiere of Maggie O’Farrell’s Hamnet adapted by Lolita Chakrabarti and directed by RSC Acting Artistic Director Erica Whyman.

The hotly anticipated production will make its world premiere in the newly restored Swan theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon this April, after selling out its eleven-week run.

Innovate’s Ajani Cabey will be playing the title role of Hamnet and Tomas Day. This is Ajani’s first professional stage debut.
