Ophelia Thinks Harder

by Jean Betts

So you think you know Hamlet?


The King is dead, the Queen has married his brother, the Prince is a hazard and the new King is a puppet. 

Meanwhile, Ophelia tries to please. Ophelia wonders why she is not enough. Ophelia is fed up, so Ophelia thinks harder.

‘How come I turned into a woman!!? Can’t I just stay a person?’

A hilarious rethink of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy – only this time Ophelia gets all the best lines.
