Hamlet Update

The Royal Shakespeare Company have announced that David Tennant will not be returning to his role of Hamlet, in the production of the play of that name, until Christmas, at least. David has got a back injury, and because of this, has pulled out of performances since Monday. He is having back surgery, which will take a long time. But, to make his full recovery, they decided that it was the best thing for him to do. His understudy, Edward Bennett (who normally plays Laertes in the production) will be taking the role until he returns. Does this mean that there will be empty seats? Well, yes, because some families have been reported to have not gone, as they only wanted to see David, but they do not get refunds. But now rumours are spreading that he may not be able to continue with specials next year, because of this, so what do you think will happen? We all hoped we'd have him until 2010...
