As with all Shakespeare plays there are no “intervals” marked and even the Act and Scene numbers are a recent addition.

Where do you take the interval in Julius Caesar. The obvious place is between three and four. Where have companies placed their intervals?

In Hamlet at the RSC with David Tennant, They took the Interval at the moment Hamlet sees Claudius praying and is about to stab him Act three Scene Three to tremendous effect.

 73   Now might I do it pat, now he is praying;
 74   And now I’ll do’t. (Raises Dagger —  BLACKOUT
