Event Details

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.
