Michaelmas Week 6
A group of students get together to perform a play, something called "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare. You won't know it, and they certainly don’t. The actors speak in a strange language called Dogg, but in their public school surroundings have worked at understanding the play; the extent of their understanding, however, is questionable.
The audience witnesses the effects of two worlds colliding; communicating in what the inhabitants think is the same lingo, but which quite clearly isn’t. Dogg's Hamlet is an experiment in theatrical language, an investigation of meaning, a comedy of confusion and a very silly play.
