      12 Ophelias (a Play with Broken Songs)

      Check it: "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." This Caridad Svich play is directed by Jess Shoemaker.
      Oct. 3-13. Tue.-Fri., 7:30pm; Sat., 2 & 7:30pm; Sun., 2pm. $15-26.
