The show is about three pre-pubescent girls who decide to stage a production of Hamlet - bossy Alexandra will play Hamlet, shy Ophelia will play Ophelia (of course), and Chloe the actress will play all the other characters. When, as an exercise, they decide to never drop character, the dramas of their middle school quibbles magnify alongside Denmark's tragic tale, resulting in a very real tween tragedy.
Featuring Alexandra Bassett, Savannah Clement, and Lauren Weinberg, HAMLETTES is being produced as part of the 14th Annual New York International Fringe Festival.
