DOGG'S HAMLET includes the entire 15 minute Hamlet (even the 1 minute
re-cap)...it is the last few pages of the play.  DOGG'S HAMLET is a play
about a group of school boys, who speak a language called Dogg, who are
putting on the 15 minute Hamlet in its "original language."  But the
Hamlet section at the end is indeed the exact same as the previously
published 15 minute version.

So if you have access to DOGG'S HAMLET you already have what you need!
