Description:
Written by William Missouri Downs
Directed by Bert Juhrend

In Shakespeare’s day, men played the women’s roles, but this all-female comedy will take revenge. Jessica is an aspiring actress from Minnesota, whose unexpectedly cast as the lead role in “Hamlet” in a New York production. This sends her into an existential tailspin and it doesn’t help that she faces an uphill battle through a maze of self-important humanities professors, Freudian psychiatrists, an insulting acting teacher and a Minnesota mother. Or, that every Starbucks barista with an MFA tells her she’s too young for the role. How can Jessica figure out “to be or not to be,” when she can’t even figure out herself?

[PG-13, some adult humor]
