              It is the eve of Janet Royd's wedding to Dallas Chaynor. The house is in a state of turmoil with the dressmaker hovering, the caterers arrangements to be made, the telephone continually ringing, wedding presents arriving and being listed and acknowledged and displayed, and relati...ons turning up and behaving with the boisterous humour or coy suggestiveness, which they think suitable for the occasion. It is all too much for Janet's nerves; she feels that the lovely and precious relationship between Dallas and herself is being stifled, and gets to the pitch of telling him that she cannot go through with the wedding. Dallas acts drastically, taking her away in his car to talk things out, and in the flat which has been prepared for their future life they re-establish peace and sanity. And there they remain for the night. Unfortunately their car breaks down on the return journey, and Janet only just succeeds in getting back to her home in time to be ready for the wedding. Her absence has been concealed by a sympathetic aunt, with the connivance of the housekeeper and Janet's father.

              Following his success with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the author continues his association with Hamlet by taking the most well-known and best-loved lines from Shakespeare's play and condensing them into a hilarious version of the play lasting approximately thirteen mi...nutes. The miraculous feat is followed by an encore which consists of a two-minute version of the play! The vast multitude of characters is played by six actors with hectic doubling, and the action takes place at a shortened version of Elsinore Castle.
