Shakespeare's Ophelia rises up out of the water, dreaming of Pop-Tarts and other sweet things. She finds herself in a neo-Elizabethan Appalachian setting where Gertrude runs a brothel, Hamlet is called a Rude Boy and nothing is what it seems. In this mirrored world of word-scraps and cold sex, Ophelia cuts a new path for herself.
Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater
Music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Frank Wedekind

Directed by Anna Skidis Vargas
