Hamlet, the First Quarto

 

The so-called “bad quarto,” or first printing of Hamlet has mystified scholars for decades. It’s half as long, less poetic, with some seemingly garbled text, a different plot sequence, and an additional scene between Horatio and the Queen. Competing theories speculate that it may be a touring script or an early draft that was never meant for printing. One theory maintains that it is a pirated version of Hamlet.

We say, it is just perfect.

The brevity and admittedly peculiar language of this version jar both actors and audience from the comfort of the familiar and drop them into a play that is thrilling and provocative.
