    1. Don t want to read the full version of Hamlet The one shoved down your throat at school since the time Shakespeare owed Jesus a dollar Well, get on board the cut price Hamlet Tom Stoppard s Fifteen Minute Hamlet Everything you need to know about the play is in here, condensed like milk, boiled down like a lolly Stoppard proves again that he s an amazing playwright Bonus points for the fact it s only twenty pages long More bonus points for making a play I don t quite enjoy, enjoyable Though, I mu [...]


    2. I loved this play so much, even in high school it was one of my all time favorites I have been in three different productions of this play, acting as several different parts My favorite being when I got to play the grave digger and four other parts, including the role of the ghost king I loved this portrayal of Shakespeare s classic It is hilarious fun while offering a tremendous level of customization for both the director and the set designer to have a blast But further there is a huge opportu [...]


    3. One of my goals in life is to watch an actual production of this play, because God is it fun to read I literally read it entirely on a single bus ride, then read it again when I got into my room, if only so I could freely laugh at how quickly the play goes by I ve heard stories about how difficult the play is to produce on stage, but I imagine it s so worth it I would suggest this to everyone, Shakespeare fans and non Shakespeare fans alikeI mean, it takes 15 minutes to read, it s amazing


    4. An amusing exercise in brevity and not so demeaning to the original play as I d expected Stoppard distills the key events, accentuating the betrayal at the beginning and Hamlet s spiral into bitterness and violence This would make a good refresher tool for students who are studying Shakespeare, as something in between the text and Spark Notes I have no idea how you d perform it, though, other than having the players run off the stage at hilarious speeds.


    5. Performing The Fifteen Minute Hamlet was one of my favorite experiences as an actor It was so refreshing to take Hamlet off of its pedestal and see it reinterpreted in a way that would bring belly laughs The amazing thing is that it actually made me appreciate Hamlet that much .



    6. Hysterical We did this as an excercise in a Theatre class in 7th grade Where each character was translated into a modern character.





    7. The Fifteen Minute Hamlet by Tom Stoppard10 out of 10 There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so Some would criticize the idea of taking a chef d oeuvre and mutilate it, as they would see this short play based on Hamlet.In fact, this contains quotes from one the most famous, acclaimed masterpieces ever written, included on prestigious lists theguardian world 200The Norwegian Book Club has compiled a list of the best one hundred books of all time and you can find it on the inte [...]


    8. Tom Stoppard hace de Hamlet un juego de ni os a child s play , en el sentido literal de la frase pero tambi n en el del nonsense o absurdo de su concepto Un elenco infantil monta la obra maestra de Shakespeare sin tener la menor idea de lo que dicen sus parlamentos, y es que todo est adem s desfigurado minimizado en lo que m s importa la emoci n y la filosof a de una pieza tan larga como densa en sus significados El resultado es casi como si Pierre Menard hubiera preferido al melanc lico dan s p [...]


    9. Does pretty much what it says on the cover Although it is actually one Thirteen Minute Hamlet followed by another Two Minute Hamlet Witty and frantic fun in any case.



    10. Tom Stoppard accomplishes an impressive feat to distill Hamlet down to it s core essence, while retaining the iconic lines.
