Please, Continue (Hamlet) is framed as a homicide trial in which a Chicago cast performs in the roles of Gertrude, Ophelia, and Hamlet. The starring roles of each performance, however, are those of the court officials: roles played by actual members of the judiciary including prosecutors, trial judges, and public defenders. They endeavor in earnest to succeed in the trial and convince a jury of audience members of Hamlet’s guilt or innocence. The jury is selected from the audience.
