Ummm so yo daddy has been hanging around here as a ghost.
Is this ghost my dad for reals? I must take revenge on Claudius if it is!
Oh yes Hamlet, it is me.
Hey guys can you act out a situation for me?
My dad was poisoned!
Of course we will help you!
Oops, my bad. He deserved to get stabbed
The setting is Elsinore Castle, in Denmark•The former King of Demark has died, and a group of soldiers tell his son, PrinceHamlet, that they believe they saw his ghost.

Ha! They thought they were going to kill me.
Throughout the rising action, Hamlet tries to figure out if Claudius truly killed hisfather. When he hears a group of actors are coming, he requests that they act outa play that depicts a king being poisoned in the ear. This mimics the way theghost claims he was killed.
