Hamlet♀‏

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jim Hil

Suicide, incest, murder, guilt, grief, mortality and unrequited love; Hamlet is poem unlimited. Neither constrained by time nor the tropes of tragedy, Hamlet has evolved into secular scripture, and in it can be found all these things and more. Need it be constrained as well by gender roles? Women have played the title role before, but never have they played Hamlet as a young woman. What if Ophelia were male? Polonius an old woman? Gertrude a fickle man, and Claudius a scheming adulterous female? Would we feel differently about the characters? Would it change our preconceptions? In this production you will see and experience a familiar story in a brand new light. It’s Hamlet, reversed.

Performances: April 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 30; May 1, 2 2015
