This program presents an abbreviated version of a Commedia Dell'Arte Hamlet, with farce and improvised dialogue interpolated into the play as written by Shakespeare. Based on the text of the First Folio, this approach emphasizes the relationship of old Italian slapstick to Elizabethan drama. Characters introduced into this version include Arlecchino, Captain, and Doctor- well-known in medieval Italian comedies and prototypes of the Punch and Judy shows.
