ENTER OPHELIA

A near drowned damsel steps into the spotlight – a gothic black comedy about secrets, madness and mansplaining

In a world of mad men and murdering uncles, drowning never felt so good. A woman wanders an empty castle, clutching rotting flowers – told what to do, where to stand, what to think. No one really listens to her, no one really sees her.

Enter Ophelia is a darkly funny gothic riff imagining a vastly different future for our drowned damsel.

Two of Melbourne’s most exciting indie theatre companies Essential Theatre and Three Birds Theatre come together to present the world premiere of a thrilling new exploration of femininity, isolation and silliness.

 

“Essential Theatre delivers the gravity and depth behind the words superbly, and electrify their modest space.  Shakespeare would be proud. ★★★★”

-Edinburgh Guide 2017

 

“Three Birds Theatre .. Sharp as a razor, very witty, very funny and beautifully directed with much visual humour”

-Stage Whispers 2016
