This paper discusses the concept of "play" in Shakespeare's Hamlet, discussing how the multiple "plays" within the play reveal insight into the characters who participate in them and move the action forward to set up more "plays."

From the Paper:

"In William Shakespeare's "Hamlet", the concept of a play is very significant. We see that Hamlet intends to use the play put on by the players to see if Claudius is guilty or if he himself is insane to believe in the words of a ghost. As he tells Horatio; "If his occulted guilt. Do not itself unkennel in one speech. It is a damned ghost that we have seen. And my imaginations are as foul. As Vulcan's stithy." Shakespeare III ii."
