Juliet is about to kill herself. Lady Macbeth and Ophelia 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 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 been put there? Is there a way out? And exactly why was Hamlet so obsessed with himself that he failed to notice anyone else around him was more than one dimensional? This wry black comedy explores the 'what if' behind three of Shakespeare's most famous characters, and why artists so easily reduce female characters to no more than 'mad women'. "An ingenious dark comedy" (Talk Stagey To Me). "Bursting at the seams with wit and warmth" (A Younger Theatre). **** (Voice Magazine). **** (The Spy In The Stalls). **** (London Theatre
