The Fifteen Minute Hamlet Paperback
by Tom Stoppard
Part of the Acting Edition S. series
Following his success with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the author continues his association with Hamlet by taking the most well-known and best-loved lines from Shakespeare's play and condensing them into a hilarious version of the play lasting approximately thirteen minutes.
The miraculous feat is followed by an encore which consists of a two-minute version of the play!
The vast multitude of characters is played by six actors with hectic doubling, and the action takes place at a shortened version of Elsinore Castle.
