July 23-24, 2017

Directed by Heidi Handelsman
Sure, Hamlet ends with a pile of dead bodies on the carpet, but what about the one that landed in the river? Remember her? What if that crazy babe with the flowers rose up out of the river to find herself ravenous, righteous, and dripping with sweetness in a wild new world? Originally developed by members of the Powerhouse Theater Training Company in 2002, 12 Ophelias is a lyrical, sultry odyssey as seen through the eyes of Shakespeare's most beguiled maiden.
Free and open to the public. No ticket required.
