During the duel, Gertrude accidentally drinks the poisoned wine intended for Hamlet.

In addition to the recent upheavals within the royal family, Denmark is under threat from Fortinbras, the son of the late king of Norway.

After the play, Hamlet spies Claudius at prayer and realizes that this would be the perfect time to enact his revenge and kill him.

However, he reasons that it would be too lenient to allow Claudius to go to heaven cleansed of his sins and decides that he should wait to act.

Desperate to maintain order, Claudius decides to send Hamlet (accompanied by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern) to England at once.

In secret, Claudius drafts a letter to England, instructing that Hamlet be killed immediately upon arrival.

Unbeknownst to his uncle (the current king of Norway), young Fortinbras has been gathering troops to attack Denmark and reclaim the lands his father once lost.

One night, the ghost of the late king appears to Hamlet and reveals that his seemingly accidental death was actually a murder.

Meanwhile, inspired by the arrival of an acting troupe, Hamlet decides to have them perform a play that will mimic his father’s murder.
