“We have not been picked out simply to be abandoned… we are entitled to some direction I would have thought!” 

A brilliant exercise in putting tertiary characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet center stage!

This is what I read whenever I’m overwhelmed with existential dread--so I’ve read it quite a few times. It’s an all time favorite. Humor and profundity hold hands throughout in a way I so distinctly remember blew my mind the first time I encountered it. Let this play make you laugh and make you think.
