In December 1995, The Shakespeare Globe Centre (USA) sponsored a
fundraising event called "Hamlet On Trial" at the Association of the Bar
of the City of New York.  The premise was Hamlet standing trial for the
murder of Polonius.  The event was chaired by Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.,
and the judge was The Honorable Robert W. Sweet, United States District
Court.  The prosecution was led by Raoul Felder, Esq. and Hamlet was
defended by Herman Badillo, Esq.  Hamlet was played by Tony Award
winning actor Stephen Lang.  Linda Thorson played Gertrude, Michael
Allinson played Claudius and Ophelia was played by Beth Lincks.  Douglas
Broyes played the Ghost.   The event was written and directed by
Elizabeth Falk.

This event was videotaped, but only for in-house and archival purposes
of the Shakespeare Globe Centre.  Special requests for viewing the tape
would be considered on an individual basis, with the understanding that
a copyright is held by Ms. Falk.

Mrs. Falk is currently restaging "Hamlet On Trial" for the UK/AZ
Festival in Phoenix, Arizona.  It will be presented on this Saturday,
October 25.  For ticket information, call the UK/AZ Festival office, at
602-534-2995.

Also, for those in the Phoenix area, for the duration of the Festival,
there is a display of a scale model of the International Shakespeare
Globe Centre at "dupuis" in the Biltmore Fashion Park.

I think that a tape was available (though quite costly). You might
contact Court TV regarding purchase of the tape or a rerun date.
