Adapted from Shakespeare’s Hamlet by Tatiana Baccari
Edited by Wednesday Sue Derrico

SheNYC Festival at The Connelly Theater, Summer 2017

Hamlet comes home from college to find her father dead. Claudia, a stone-butch lesbian and Hamlet’s aunt, seduces Gertrude, topples the patriarchy, and steals the throne with her bra-burning feminist followers. With the help of Horatio, her genderqueer best friend, Hamlet embarks on a quest to prove Claudia’s guilt and avenge her father’s murder. Hamlet becomes unhinged as she battles the waves of pressure from her royal family against questions of her own identity, sexuality and feminism. With tension between the queer millennials and second wave lesbians building, and a country rife with internal violence, what will become of Hamlet and Denmark’s new feminist ruling class?
