Note the great similarity between this scene and the "Hamlet-Frighted with False Fire" also displayed in this section. Artists for both scenes are unknown but I suspect it is the same person. Scene is the famous "play within a play" from Act III in which Hamlet has arranged for a group of traveling players to reenact Hamlet's suspicions that his father was murdered by his uncle to claim the throne and marry his mother. A Picture Puzzle Exchange puzzle made by Isabel Ayer, Boston, MA, probably late in her career in the 1930's. Plywood, non-interlocking, cut extensively along color lines with 14 figure pieces (unusual for her).
