    I'm not sure what play you are talking about, but as a Shakespearean Actress, I have to say that Language is the most important component in any Shakespeare play. If you look at the First Folio (believed to be the closest to his original work) you will notice that there are not a lot of stage directions. Editors like to add in stage directions, and sometimes change punctuation, words, and even whole lines.

    So, actors inferred their stage directions from the lines that were spoken. If someone says, "Wherefore weep you?", that probably means the actor should be crying.

    Also, in Elizabethan drama, there usually weren't a lot of fancy set pieces like we have today, so plays were dependent on the clarity of the situation and setting through spoken word. Everything comes from the language.

    You might want to include the name of the play you're asking about.
