For Lord Hamlet, Believe so much in him that he is young And with larger tether may he walk Than may be given you.

Is Hamlet like Prince Hal? Free to mess around
Until ascending the throne, at which point, he is meant
To throw over his boyish pursuits.
Is Ophelia Hamlet’s Falstaff?
Rather than his father calling him in to read him the riot act
(At least not that we see or know of)
Or being called into action by rebels (unless Claudius can be counted the ultimate rebel)
Hamlet casts aside his previous life
After a visit from the after life.
What if Henry IV was the prequel to Hamlet rather than Henry V?
What if Prince Hal grew up to be Hamlet instead of Henry?
I suddenly want to see a mash up of these two plays.
