Synopsis


Juliet is about to kill herself.


All Lady Macbeth and Ophelia can do is watch and wait for her to arrive.


The three women reside alone in a forgotten wasteland which abides by no rhyme or reason; their only knowledge is that they all got there by the same route.


Together they play cards, drink moonshine, and piece together the remnants of their pasts to find out: why have they all been put there?


Is there a way out?


And why was Hamlet so obsessed with himself that he failed to notice anyone else around him was more than one dimensional?


Lady Garden Theatre Company's 'Shakespeare's Mad Women', written by Abigail Smith, and devised by the all female company, this witty black comedy explores the 'what if' behind three of Shakespeare's most famous female characters, and why artists so easily reduce female characters to no more than 'mad women'.
