I thought I knew what happened in Hamlet but apparently not. I did not realize how much of a tragedy it was.
There is a chance that because I didn't know enough about the story and the characters that listening to a audio production didn't have the same impact. I was often left wondering who was talking and what they were talking about.
It might be worth returning to sometime, maybe by going to a real life production.
