Is that King Hamlet?!?
Now I can be the king, and have his wife.
Barnardo and Marcellus see the ghost of King Hamlet and try to get him to speak... he doesn't. They decided they're going to tell Young Hamlet and see if the ghost will talk to him. The ghost does eventually and tells Young Hamlet who killed him, which it was Claudious the kings brother. He needs to then avenge his fathers death, which he decides to do in a play.
Polonious goes to Claudious telling him that Young Hamlet might be acting crazy because he banned him from seeing his daughter Ophelia.
Young Hamlet came up with the plan of being in the play and changing it up a bit by putting in a scene of someone putting poison in another persons ear, while they were asleep. Then Hamlet, from the audience, would watch the king and queens reaction. Then see if they're guilty and kill Claudious for King Hamlet.
