One Minute Hamlet

Note: It's not actually one minute.


That pretty much sums it up.  I love Hamlet's nonsensical recital of famous lines and Yorick's very brief appearance.

Ian. I am dying. Personally, I think we should perform this at assembly instead. Unfortunately, if this is somewhat accurate, now I know that essentially everyone dies.. Here I was innocently hoping Hamlet and Ophelia's love would overcome all obstacles and they would ride off into the sunset. Apparently not. Although it did kind of bother me how Ophelia was so mindless and constantly listening to her father.

I totally agree with you Brooke. At this point I don't whether hamlet would have actually married Ophelia if hadn't of been for her father. I wonder whether hamlet actually loved Ophelia or if her father is right. The father is constantly incorrect though while evaluating hamlet's situation.

Ian this is fantastic. It's actually a pretty accurate representation of what happens in the play. Since Shakespeare is known for shredding any hope of a "happily-ever-after," I figured either everyone would die, or Ophelia definitely would (let's be real, pretty much EVERY female love interest commits suicide). His plays typically don't end well for the love interests or anyone for that matter, unless you're young Fortinbras.

That was pretty great. I really liked Ophelia's line about her death. All and that, really is pretty accurate.
