Discovering Hamlet

1990 NR

Go behind the scenes with this documentary that traces the making of Hamlet, the hit play that stars Kenneth Branagh in the lead role under the leadership of Shakespearian actor and director Derek Jacobi. This program from PBS provides insight into the staging of a play as it follows rigorous rehearsals -- the production's main actors, including David Parfitt, learn their parts in just one month -- at England's Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
