The Secret Love Life of Ophelia

Berkoff The Secret Love Life of Ophelia 


Greenwich Theatre in London are staging a revival of Berkoff's The Secret Love Life of Ophelia. Helen Mirren will play Gertrude and the roles of Hamlet and Ophelia, told in letters to each other, will be performed by 39 actors each reading a letter, giving each actor the chance to play Hamlet or Ophelia.

I saw the original production (in a theatre) and it is highly recommended.
