“I do not know, my lord, what I should think.”

A new work exploring Ophelia, freed from Hamlet.

Three of the UK’s most acclaimed theatre artists challenge our cultural images of Ophelia in art and on stage, placing one of the most side-lined women in English literature at the centre of the narrative.

The production is a major collaboration between the Royal Court and the Schaubühne Berlin and opened in Berlin in December 2015.

In German with English subtitles.
