Project O Presents the Play

PROJECT O PRESENTS“O” THE PLAY

”O” is a tour de force performance designed to tour nationally and internationally.

Based on Ophelia’s story in Hamlet, “O” play makes use of a dark metaphor hidden in Shakespeare. There are 31,000 words in Hamlet, and Ophelia is given about 1,000 – a literary glass ceiling.

Development for the theatrical work occurs in the community setting, with an acclaimed writer, director and performer weaving the personal stories of participants into the stage presentation: a reframing of Ophelia’s narrative, driven by young women.
