Shakespeare’s Villains is a series of blogs by Finding Shakespeare and our education team. This week is our penultimate villain and we are focusing on Hamlet’s villainous King Claudius.

Access and Interpretation Coordinator, Anna Griffiths, is looking at a costume design for Mark Dignam’s Claudius in the 1958 production at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre.
