theatre -- R/G
(Immediately the whole stage is lit up, revealing, upstage, arranged in
the approximate positions last held by the dead TRAGEDIANS, the tableau of
court and corpses which is the last scene of "Hamlet".)
(That is: The KING, QUEEN, LAERTES and HAMLET all dead. HORATIO holds HAMLET. FORTINBRAS is there.)
(So are two AMBASSADORS from England.)
AMBASSADORS: The signal is dismal;
and our affairs from England come too late.
The ears are senseless that should give us hearing to
tell him his commandment is fulfilled, that
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.
Where should we have our thanks?
HORATIO: Not from his mouth, had it the ability of life to thank you:
He never gave commandment for their death. But since, so jump upon this
bloody question, you from the Polack wars, and you from England, are here
arrived, give order that these bodies high on a stage be placed to the view;
and let me speak to the yet unknowing world how these things came about: so
shall you hear of carnal, bloody and unnatural acts, of accidental
judgements, casual slaughters, of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause,
and, in this upshot, purposes mistook fallen on the inventors' heads: all
this can I truly deliver.
(But during the above speech the play fades, overtaken by dark and music.)
