BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Written and Performed by Ian Wild, Starring Irene Kelleher
William Shakespeare, reincarnated as a woman, finds herself in a mental asylum and comes to the conclusion that she has made a complete mess of writing ‘Hamlet’ 400 years earlier.
Armed with a quill and beset by a rebellious cast of characters (who are anxious not to be rewritten), she embarks on an epic reformulation of theatre’s most famous text under the new title of ‘Ophelia’.
Unfortunately, William’s therapist is unsympathetic. Is that because he is also a reincarnated Christopher Marlowe, consumed with an envy that has been festering away since 1597?
Running time is one hour.
Date: Saturday 18th April at 8:00pm
