There is so much in this play--revenge, sanity and insanity, the genre of tragedy, family relationships,
doing and thinking, corruption and decay- but we are going to focus on two themes in particular: performance, and appearance vs. reality.
We are going to watch different film versions of the play, and compare performances, stagings, and interpretations, as well.
