Banned from the school trip for disrupting a performance of "Hamlet", Russell and his friends run away to London. But when their plans go wrong, Russell is left alone at Heathrow Airport. Sleeping rough, he finds plenty of time to think about the parallels between his life and Hamlet's.
"In Heathrow Nights, Jan Mark is on top form, accompanying three mixed-up young lads on the run from adult disapproval. The hero, Russell... sees parallels with Hamlet and Claudius in his adventures and relationship with his stepfather... this book could be a great introduction to Shakespeare"

"...will actively encourage boys to read and understand the power of Shakespeare and his characters."
