Storyline

In "Dogg's Hamlet," a group of Dogg-speaking high school students set up for and perform a fifteen minute version of "Hamlet." Their process is dealt with by an unsuspecting deliveryman who finds he can't understand a word they're saying. In "Cahoot's Macbeth," renegade Normalization-era Czech actors continue their private exhibition of "Macbeth" under the scrutinizing eye of a malicious police inspector. Written by J. Paul Zimmerman
