An elaborate wooded setting beside the sea-shore. Trees to right and left, rocks
at centre, and behind them a turbulent sea with rocky cliffs beyond. At centre
Hamlet stands facing forward, his left hand upon the shoulder of Horatio who stands
facing him at right. Some distance away, observing Hamlet and Horatio from the
left, stands Marcellus. This moment is obviously close to the end of the scene
after Hamlet has forced Marcellus and Horatio to swear upon his sword.
