Ophelia Thinks Harder
By Jean Betts and Wm Shakespeare
Directed by Ivana Palezevic
By arrangement with Playmarket New Zealand
Come on a roller coaster ride of a different kind. You think you know Hamlet, but this ain’t about him. This time, Ophelia gets the best lines and no one is going to stand in her way. Not even that stupid Virgin Mary up there. Yeah, you!
Ophelia Thinks Harder takes on Shakespeare’s iconic Hamlet and puts on a funny, naughty, yet insightful re-imagining to shine some light on the women who stand in the background.
A classic New Zealand text, frequently performed and studied around the country and overseas.
