This famous revenge tragedy is often regarded as Shakespeare’s finest play; and it has never before been performed on our stage. Some parts may be cast gender-blind and there will probably be some doubling. The original script is five hours long so, as in most productions, the play has been shortened and is expected to finish at around 10pm.


Michael Bath, Director

    About Us

    Medway Little Theatre is situated in historic Rochester, at the heart of the Medway Authority in North Kent. It was converted from a disused warehouse into a 100 (now 96) seat theatre in 1958. In 1995 we acquired the freehold to our premises with the aid of a generous grant from the old Rochester City Council. We are now in our 62nd season, a fully-equipped public theatre, with well over 400 productions behind us.

    There is always a welcoming atmosphere in our friendly auditorium with its integral bar. Anyone interested in joining the company in any capacity is invited to come along to meet us at our social nights, every Tuesday from 8pm onwards, except during productions.

    We have two active Youth Sections:

  • The Children's Workshop (ages 7-12) which meets on Saturdays from 2pm - 4pm
  • The Youth Company (ages 12-18) which meets on Saturdays from 10.30am -12.30pm
  • We organise a one-act play festival annually for visiting youth and adult groups throughout North Kent and beyond, as well as making regular contributions to the life of the Medway Towns through outreach activities and participation in Medway's Arts and Dickens Festivals.

    Over the years, we have successfully presented the complete range of theatre, from Sophocles to The Graduate, as a scroll through our list of productions since 1959 will show and we continue to use our small stage in ambitious and innovative ways.
