Shakespeare's Mad Women

Juliet is about to kill herself.

 

All Lady Macbeth and Ophelia can do is watch and wait for her to arrive. The three women reside alone in a forgotten wasteland which abides by no rhyme or reason; their only knowledge that they all got there by the same route.

 

Together they play cards, drink moonshine from teacups, and piece together the remnants of their pasts to find out: exactly why have they all been put there? Is there a way out? And exactly why was Hamlet so obsessed with himself that he failed to notice anyone else around him was more than one dimensional?

Following a successful stream of performances throughout 2018, Lady Garden Theatre Company are bringing Shakespeare's Mad Women back for 2021, with a bold and fresh take on the 'what if' behind three of Shakespeare's most famous female characters, and why artists so easily reduce female characters to no more than 'mad women'.
