Subject:        Hamlet in the Prison

I think some of you might like to know that last month in a prison named
Coroneo, in Trieste, the prisoners performed HAMLET.

The production was directed by an actor named Misculin (who is not a
prisoner) and part of the cast was also the governor, Enrico Sbriglia
(he played the King,I think).

Hamlet was played by Graziano Scialpi, whose impressive interpretation
raised the critics' enthusiasm.

I think it is interesting to know that this Mr. Scialpi, a rather
learned man of forty, is in prison because he fired at his wife and her
sister: the latter died while the former survived but became blind.

I hope I can find a video of the performance, because I feel very
