Hamlet

Premiere: 4/27/2010

Shakespeare's immortal "To be, or not to be" takes on a whole new meaning (and medium) as classical stage and screen actors David Tennant and (recently-knighted) Sir Patrick Stewart reprise their roles for a modern-dress, film-for-television adaptation of the Royal Shakespeare Company's (RSC) 2008 stage production of Hamlet.

The final scene. How did the choices the actors made differ from the choices of the group? What movements were the most effective and why? What was more significant gesture or looks? You might want to watch it again with the sound off to specifically look at how the actors tell the story with their bodies and their faces.

The above clip is for use in an activity found in the Hamlet Teachers’ Guide. [download the full PDF of the guide]
