November 8 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm
Ophelia Thinks Harder
by Jean Betts
So you think you know Hamlet?
The Prince is a hazard and the new King’s a puppet. Who the hell is running Denmark?
Ophelia tries to please. Ophelia fails. Ophelia thinks harder.
With guerilla feminists invading the castle, failed spells from a frustrated maid, endless direction from a wily Queen and various ignored ghosts, this is not the Hamlet you know.
Ophelia Thinks Harder is a heightened, confused and darkly-funny world, where Shakespeare meets feminism.
And this time Ophelia gets all the best lines.
