let’s all take a moment to remember the minor characters from hamlet

  • all the guards at elsinore but especially marcellus. i love marcellus for some reason. too bad he kind of disappears after act 1 (probably had to keep doing his job so he couldn’t just run around with the prince and his scholar bf all the time. plus he probably felt like a third wheel)
  • reynaldo, otherwise known as ‘that one guy who polonius sends to france to go spy on his son for him’ but unlike laertes, we never see him return to elsinore? maybe laertes found out reynaldo was spying on him and killed him. maybe reynaldo did return but it was never mentioned. maybe he just decided ‘fuck denmark france is where it’s at’ and stayed in france. we just don’t know
  • cornelius and voldemort voltemand. they travel to norway and back delivering messages. i would have listed them separately but they’re kind of like rosencrantz and guildenstern, you can’t have one without the other (although lots of productions do tend to just turn them into one person, i’ve noticed)
  • and speaking of norway, fortinbras! fortinbras is probably the one person in this play who really gets a happy ending. he ends up being king of denmark and he didn’t even have to fight for it or anything. way to go fortinbras i’m happy for you
  • they aren’t named in the text, but the gravediggers. especially the really witty one like damn son you just beat hamlet ‘words words words’ prince of denmark in a battle of wits four for you unnamed gravedigger
  • osric. osric the somewhat foolish courtier who totally has a fanboy crush on laertes. in hamlet at elsinore, as soon as laertes fell osric was there which i think is definitely how that scene should be staged

i don’t know. the minor characters are cool. but the really cool thing is that none of them die! (except possibly reynaldo. and osric if you’re watching the kenbran version)

Three days and counting before jetting off. My London week long itinerary is looking a tad bit psychotic.

-Sherlock geekout afternoon with kenbran
-Martin/Richard III fangirling and stage dooring for at least 3-4 nights over the week
-Three tours, two of them (London City, Bath, Stonehenge and Cotswolds) all day ones
-Stratford upon Avon for a day to go check out the place and their RSC archive
-British Museum for all the Ancient Egyptian artifacts
-Oxford and Regent St shopping
-Covent Garden
-Abbey Road Studios for Mum (and me too, but Mum made me a Beatles fan to start with so I have to get her *something* from there )
-Greenwich (somehow, my brother told me it was a nice spot to check out, and he’s a British naval history nerd, so I can’t say no to that, lol)
-My private mission to find a place which makes great, *proper* coffee I can actually drink (a mission which failed miserably in the US)
