"My Agenda" -- how to rehearse on "Style" ... tableaux vivans = living pictures [ named and numbered ]?
... Okay, you are not allowed to point out the weaknesses of the scripts by Shakespeare, but can I say about slapped together pieces of "texts" by Stoppard? Bad drama, even if it's good writing. I haven't heard anybody saying -- hey, man, this doesn't make sense (part 1 and 2 in the first meeting of R/G aith Player, act 1).

2007 & 2001 : Without Directions (R/G are Dead)

What does this project have to do with Hamlet? Just to help me transition to my own story, without losing the structure and the general themes. I do not want it to stay shapeless like Diary; it has to have a narrative. In fact, several narratives, since this is a hypertext.

... I have to remember that R/G is about me -- lost ("extra"), non-essentual ... and THEATRE, which passed by touching my face with its invisible wing.
What (historical) directions ? What could good directions be, besides stage directions?
Did Hamlet have his way out? Prince Hamlet, formely known as "Prince" -- what was he doing in Eisinore?
Did he want them to take him back to the university, the two who knew him as Hamlet, not "Prince Hamlet"... And how they address him -- ?
Betrayal -- that was obvious.
... "America 2008" (politics)
... in addition to Hamlet funny synopsis.
"All that is straight lies," the dwarf murmured contemptuously. "All truth is crooked; time itself is a circle." Zarathustra, Nietzsche
... The postmodernism is old, but Americans still do not know what PoMo is, although they already had two pm presidents. When students ask me about the postmoderm I tell them to read "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead". Written by Tom Stoppard first in 1964, then re-written in 1966 and 68, this play is a mix of Shakespeare and Beckett ("pastiche" of both) and represents the game of the present with the past, when the present has no plans for future.
Darling of college stage the script has it all -- good and bad of the modern theatre. "Comedy about Tragedy" -- how I define the genre for myself.
For Lev Tolstoy all Shakespeare was nonsical and for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern the action in "Hamlet" make no sense. And what about life for Stoppard? Or for me...
Nonsense? Oh, this is perhaps, the most dramatic part of "tobe and not to be"!
"Before winning an Oscar as a writer of Shakespeare in Love, Tom Stoppard delivered another ingenious comic retelling involving the Bard of Stratford-upon-Avon. In 1967 he dove into the world's most famous play, Hamlet, and retold it from the point of view of two bumbling support players. The entire world is a stage, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern play their part, finding themselves unwitting pawns in history's greatest tragedy.
Free will and destiny, no, we are afraid of classic dictionary!
... is it about us?
See "Hamlet" (or better, read it)... become familiar with the story line... and then think about this play.
