Abstract: This thesis is a record of a UNC-G, Summer Repertory Theatre production of Hamlet ESP by Paul Baker, performed in Taylor Theatre on June 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 23, and July 1, 3, and 5 of 1974. The first chapter provides introductory analysis: of the play "Hamlet," the play in adaptation, and detailed analysis of the characters, setting, lights and costumes. A discussion of considerations influencing the choice of the script is also included. The Promptbook comprises the second chapter. In it are notations of movement, composition, business, and characterization, as well as cues for sound, lights, special effects, and curtains. Photographs and diagrams are integrated to demonstrate composition, focus, and picturization. In the third chapter are critical evaluations of the audience response and the acting, along with discussion of technical considerations which weighed in the over-all success of the production, and/or the limitations of that success.
