            ACT 3, SCENE 1

                                   (Enter King, Queen, Polonius [with
                                   BOOK], Ophelia, Rosencrantz,
                                   Guildenstern)

                                   CLAUDIUS
                          (to Rosencrantz and
                           Guildenstern)
            So you've gotten nothing from the prince as to why he's
            acting the way he is?

                                   ROSENCRANTZ
            He confesses feeling distracted and troubled--but the exact
            cause?  He will not say.

            He evades any deep discussion with jokes and questions to
            questions.

                                   GERTRUDE
            But he did welcome you, he was genuinely pleased to see you,
            was he not?

                                   ROSENCRANTZ
            Yes, he was your majesty.

                                   GUILDENSTERN
            It appeared to take some effort to shift his disposition, but
            then we got along just as we have in the past.

                                   GERTRUDE
            And what are your plans to entertain him?  I want him
            distracted from his distraction.

                                   ROSENCRANTZ
            As it turns out Madam, we happened upon some players--

                                   POLONIUS
            That is correct, and I was to inform your majesty shortly: a
            troupe of actors have paid visit, and the prince has
            commissioned them to perform this evening.  He would like the
            King and Queen to attend.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Excellent.

                                   GERTRUDE
            This pleases me too.  Dear Rosencrantz and Guildenstern go to
            him again now, and let him know we are pleased, and that we
            will be in attendance tonight.

                                   exit.)

                                   GERTRUDE (CONT'D)
            Now, as to the plan to better understand the disposition of
            the prince--Ophelia--I do hope your beauty is the true cause
            of his wildness.  And in which case, I pray your charms can
            calm him and restore both your honors.

                                   OPHELIA
            Madam, I dearly hope so too.
