"There are hardly any props. The plain pine floor slopes slightly towards the audience. The clothes are Elizabethan mixed with modern. Hamlet wears a period cloak and tights but his shoes look like Doc Martens. He and Fortinbras's Captain watch the manoeuvres against Poland on a portable television set." John Peter, Sunday Times 3.10.93
