A genderbent Hamlet adaptation by Gracie Rittenberg

Directed by Jessica Wu

Private Industry readings produced by Bluebird Theatre Company at Open Jar Studios in Times Square, May 19-21, 2022


Hannah just wanted to be a normal anxious college student who hated her parents and her life, but the sudden death of her mother changed all of that. When she comes home to go to the funeral, she finds that her aunt is already engaged to her father. Her mother's ghost appears and tells her what really happened, it sets her off on a quest to find vengeance...or maybe just get her mom off her back. In this modern retelling of Hamlet, Shakespearean circumstances run up against modern life, and nothing stays calm for long.
