Four women. Nineteen characters. At least one existential crisis. When 29-year-old Jessica is cast in an Off-Broadway production of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Hamlet, she agonizes over the decision to be Hamlet...or not to be Hamlet? She’s poked, prodded, encouraged, and smacked down by a series of NYC (and Minnesota, don’tcha know!) characters in hilarious fashion. Where will she land? She just hopes it’ll be on her feet.

“In Shakespeare’s time, all the women’s roles were played by men, so turnabout is fair play!” says Steve Phelan, director of Women Playing Hamlet. “Audiences shouldn’t be scared off by the Shakespeare references. This is a really, really, really funny, accessible show with a lot of humor and a lot of heart.”

Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased online at or at the box office an hour prior to the show each night.

Women Playing Hamlet is presented by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

Village Players of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, is a vibrant community theatre that has produced plays and musicals for more than 50 years. Performing in an intimate space, you will feel like you are part of the action, sitting inches from the actors on three sides of the stage.
