Storyboard Text

  • The dumb show adds a layer of metatheatre to the play as well as adding to the theme of deception because Hamlet has devised the play to purposely foil Claudius.
  • "Give me some light. Away!"
  • "Thy natural magic and dire property on wholesome life usurps immediately."
  • Horatio's lack of conviction that Claudius is guilty reinforces his good character as he is not quick to jump to conclusions. He acts as a foil to Hamlet who is quick to blame his uncle suggesting his behaviour has become irrational due to his loss.
  • "Why, let the strucken deer go weep, the hart ungalled play."
  • "do you think I am easier to be played on than a pipe?"
  • Hamlet's criticisms of his friends suggests that he values loyalty and he may have taken their deception even harder due to the greater injustice his uncle committed against his father.
  • "My lord, the Queen would speak with you, and presently."
  • The dumb show begins with Hamlet, Claudius, Ophelia, Getrude, and Polonius all watching on. The character of Lucianus (meant to represent Claudius) kills the king causing Claudius to run out the room.
  • Hamlet says to Horatio that he believes this is definitive proof that Claudius is guilty and is glad his plan has worked however Horatio remains impartical.
  • Guildenstern and Rosencratz then enter and tell Hamlet that his mother wants to see him followed by Polonius who says the same. Hamlet criticizes his two school pals for deceiving him.
