Chris Seymour Seven Eighty Four/Hamlet (10) Seven Eighty Four/Hamlet 18 May 99


Adam McNaughtan's song "Our Hamlet" (hilarious, if you've not heard it -- summarizes the entire play in about five minutes of singing) has a line with a reference I don't get:

Is/was 784 an itinerant UK acting group? Or what?

Please enlighten, if you know.
