Hamlet:

I'll have grounds
More relative than this - the play's the thing
Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King.

Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 603.605

When exclaiming "The play's the thing!" we're seldom asked the embarrassing question of what "thing" we mean, exactly. Prince Hamlet, however, has something specific in mind. To elicit visible proof of what a rather visible ghost has told him "that his uncle, King Claudius, murdered his father, the former king" the prince turns playwright. His task: to sneak a few telling lines into a play about regicide his uncle will be watching at court, and to wait for Claudius to flinch. If Hamlet's plan works, he'll be convinced of both the ghost's veracity and the king's guilt and will (theoretically) feel better about paying his uncle back in kind.








Plays, Operas, Musicals, Oratory;
this is a magazine for all manner of stage presentations.
