Storyboard Text

  • "You should know, my noble son, the real snake that stung your father is now wearing his crown" (1.5.36-38).
  • "No talking about this. There is so much out of whack in these times. And damn the fact that I’m supposed to fix it! Come on, let’s go." (1.5.188-190)
  • "I’ve heard that guilty people watching a play have been so affected by the artistry of the scene that they are driven to confess their crimes out loud." (2.2.551-554).
  • At Elsinore Castle in Denmark, Prince Hamlet is dealing with the grief of his father's death. After some time, he sees his father's ghost. Hamlet is told by the ghost that he had been murdered by his brother, the new king, Claudius. 
  • "—oh, you’ve done a deed that plucks the soul out of marriage and turns religion into meaningless blather." (3.4.44-46).
  • Hamlet struggles with trying to decide if he should trust the ghost of his father. He doesn't know what to do with the information.
  • "I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers, if you added all their love together, couldn’t match mine. What are you going to do for her?" (5.1.147-149).
  • After the king begins to become suspicious of Hamlet, he has his two childhood friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, spy on him. Meanwhile, Hamlet continues to try and figure out if King Claudius really killed his father. He even creates a play that is meant to reenact how his father was killed. He plans on watching Claudius' reaction to see if he is guilty.
  • "Let four captains carry Hamlet like a soldier onto the stage. He would have been a great king if he had had the chance to prove himself." (5.2.397-399).
  • After Claudius reacts the play, Hamlet knows he is guilty. He follows him away, but does not kill him then. He visits his mother in her bedroom to try and talk to her about Claudius. He stabs Polonius through a curtain, who is the father of the young women he is trying to court, Ophelia.
  • After being banished to England for killing Polonius, Hamlet eventually escapes back to Denmark. Upon his arrival, he learns that Ophelia has killed herself after all the grief and stress due to her father's death and Hamlet's apparent madness. Ophelia's brother, Laertes, challenges Hamlet to a duel since he blames him for the death of his father and sister.
  • During the duel, Laertes poisons the tip of his sword while King Claudius poisons a cup of wine. He offers Hamlet a sip, but he denies it. His mother, Queen Gertrude, decides to take a sip and is poisoned. During this, Hamlet and Laertes are fighting and by the end, they have both been stabbed with the poisoned sword. Hamlet then kills Claudius by stabbing him as well as forcing him to drink from it. In the end, Horatio is the only one still alive and Fortinbras, Prince of Norway, arrives and takes over the throne of Denmark.
