"In the Bleak Midwinter" (dir. Branagh, 1995) concerns an effort to save
a church (I think) by putting on a production of *Hamlet.*

No one has mentioned two classic "Hamlets"

1. W.S. Gilberts play Rosencrantz and Guilderstern

2. Tom Stopard's play Dogg's Hamlet, which features increasingly fast
speed retellings of the original Hamlet's plot.

Reference was made to Mabou Mines' Queen Lear. The title was actually
just Lear. It was Shakespeare's text with changes of gender rather than
wholesale adaptation. One line I remember gives the sense of what was
done: His voice was ever gentle, low; an excellent thing in a young man.

Perhaps I missed a posting, but has anyone mentioned Tom Stoppard,
_Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth_?
