    Maybe if the coin lands on the edge, you’ll be able to read minds.

    I remember that one! I still watch Twilight Zone end of every year when SYFY has the marathon!

    “Rosenkrantz and Gildenstern Are Dead”; a play based on Hamlet, but from the perspective of Rosenkrantz and Gildenstern. Starts with a coin trick where the coin keeps on coming up as “heads”, resulting in Gildenstern getting all of Rosenkrantz’ coins.

    An acquaintance of mine performed in it a few years back. And frankly, I’ve wondered how long it would take before Candorville would make the connection.

    what if they spin a coin and it just keeps on spinning?

    Thanks, Dataweaver, I’ll have to read that! (LOVE these literary references— makes English 101 almost worthwhile. (As crossword puzzles make French 101 almost worthwhile).

    There’s also a film adaptation with Richard Dreyfuss as the Player (leader of the traveling theater troupe that puts on the play-within-a-play) and the then relatively unknown Gary Oldman and Tim Roth as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
