It is not always so. Brown studies Hamlet 's last scene in order to give an interpretation of the play, but he discovers that Shakespeare 's use of word play and ambiguity can throw off the audience 's judgment of the play.

The Seagull does this, but only to a short extent- there is a small play performed within the play, and there is talk about the relevance of theatre and art to modern life. In contrast, SFB is a veritable motherload of meta. The characters know that they’re characters, and that they happen to be performing for you. They even know that they’re specifically in an adaptation- in our specific production vision, we like to see it as our characters taking the story into their own hands to retell it. The audience see two overlapping worlds: the reality the characters face in the plot of the play, and the constructed reality of a theatrical
Shakespear utilizes foils as a part of this play to permit us perusers to comprehend Hamlet as a man and why and whom he is truly avenging. A foil is "minor character in an artistic work who by the likenesses and contrasts in what he or she does (when contrasted with a more imperative character), or by essentially being there for another character to converse with, helps the crowd comprehend a more critical character."
