Subject: The Elsinore Appeal
I have a very amusing book titled "The Elsinore Appeal", which is the
transcript of a mock trial of Hamlet (it's an appeal actually. It
assumes he survived the duel and was convicted for the deaths of
Polonius, Gertrude, Laertes, Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, and Claudius).
Someone recently told me that he saw it on TV; he thought it was a PBS
station. It may be the trial in the book, or possibly another mock
trial - I understand they have been staged in various parts of the
Does anyone know about a mock trial of Hamlet that was taped? Might it
be possible to get a copy of it?
