I teach "Hamlet" to my Detective Fiction class as a revenge play and a 
thriller (Hamlet is the detective) and would be very interested in this 
production and the script. Is the script available anywhere? Sounds 
interesting!

Paul Barry's 1988 production employed the Q1 scene ordering, though it 
was based on the usual Q2/F1 text, which was uncut, and otherwise 
unaltered, except for some slight editing for better consistency with 
"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead", which was being performed by 
the same actors on alternate nights.)

I believe that the American Shakespeare Center intends to include Q1 
Hamlet in its 2007 Actors' Renaissance Season as well.

[Editor's Note: My essay mentioned above was, in part, inspired by a 
1995 Shenandoah Shakespeare Express Hamlet directed by Ralph Cohen and 
based on the Q1 scene structure.]
