Village Players
Feb. 15-23
[Fort Thomas]

Directed by Steve Phelan

Cast: Elizabeth Beatty as Jessica (plays Hamlet); Cat Cook as acting coach, humanities professor, and Ghost; Patricia Mullins as Starbucks barrista, priest, bicycle messenger, Jessica’s niece, barfly, Home Shopping Network model, and soap opera starlet; and Heather Abbott as Lord Derby, Jessica’s mother, male psychiatrist, bartender, Home Shopping Network hostess, soap opera star, gravedigger, and stage manager.

Being cast as Hamlet in a New York production sends Jessica into an existential tailspin. It doesn’t help that her acting coach is borderline abusive, or that every Starbucks barista with an MFA tells her she’s too young for the role. Or that she somehow managed to make Sir Patrick Stewart her nemesis. How can she figure out “to be or not to be,” when she can’t even figure out herself? Rip-roaring fun for Shakespeare fans and haters alike.
