In the greatest tragedy in the English language Hamlet has 1476 lines and Ophelia has 170.  Hamlet famously talks a lot and does nothing.  If we were unaware of Hamlet’s inner life, how would we perceive him?  This rewrite of Shakespeare redresses the balance of the original play through giving voice to Ophelia, who courageously and palpably commits to action.  Exploring her big decision – to be or not to be – Ophelia becomes the true protagonist of the great tragedy.
