How about considering David Garrick's "altered" Hamlet: particularly the
replacement final scene?  I'd be interested in seeing that one.

I remember reading once that in Bowdler, Postumus' "Thy mistress,
Pisanio, hath played the strumpet in my bed" (3.4.22) is given as "Thy
mistress, Pisanio, hath played the trumpet in my bed" (grounds for
divorce, I would have thought). But I'm afraid I haven't checked it.
