Description


Women Playing Hamlet by William Missouri Downs

Produced as a joint project with Chickspeare

Directed By Tonya Bludsworth

Cast: Glynnis O' Donoghue, Tania Kelly, Andrea King, Sheila Proctor & Vivian T. Howell

Synopsis:

Jessica auditions and earns the title role of Hamlet- a challenge for any actor! This sends Jessica into an existential tailspin; everyone has an opinion about her ability (or lack thereof ) to play the role. It doesn't help that her acting coach is borderline abusive, or that every Starbucks barista with an MFA tells her she's too young, or that she's somehow managed to make Sir Patrick Stewart her nemesis. Not to mention the fact that she's a woman. How can Jessica figure out "to be or not to be," when she can't even figure out herself? Featuring an all-female cast performing multiple roles, Woman Playing Hamlet is rip-roaring fun and asks the question: do we just accept the roles in which life casts us…or do we boldly choose them?
