“The Secret Love Life of Ophelia” is a Stanislaus State production presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
By: Steven Berkoff Directed by: Jack Souza
Hamlet and Ophelia express the infinite variety of their passion in a work that takes the form of an epistolary play in verse. Steven Berkoff’s startlingly original new play charts the lovers’ story beneath the surface of Shakespeare’s play. With a muscularity of language tempered with tenderness, Berkoff’s play is shot through with images of courtly love, sexual desire, and intimations of future tragedy.
