Role Hamlet
Director Dominic Dromgoole
The Globe International Tour
Only a year out of drama school, Joshua played Hamlet for Shakespeare's Globe in a production that toured both nationally and internationally in 2011.

"It felt from the first minute that Joshua was born to be Hamlet – the energy, cheek, wit, youth – all seemed to be driving this young Hamlet forward in his quest to find the meaning and cause of his father’s death and in his perpetual struggle with what we know to be true and what we don’t." - Pete Jones Productions

At the production's heart is Joshua McGuire's pint-sized Hamlet, who suggests something of the sullen prep-schoolboy, but also a self-dramatising teenager fatally damaged, emotionally, by his father's death and mother's hasty remarriage. Lyn Gardner
The Guardian

Joshua McGuire is a young, touchingly vulnerable Hamlet, and delivers the soliloquies with freshness and spontaneity. Charles Spencer
