“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.

In this virtual production, students’ recorded performances were edited together by a technical team to create a theatrical presentation. Streaming dates are March 21 – 27 via Showtix4U. Tickets for a 48-hour on-demand streaming are $5 for general “admission,” or $3 for students, seniors and veterans. Please visit the event website for more information and a link.
