Ophelia Thinks Harder
J. Betts & W. Shakespeare

This play has been extremely popular with schools, on the curriculum and regularly in production for many years.

Reviewers' comments include:-

"Hamlet is doctored with a mightly sharp blade to make this a fantastic farce to rival the best of Shakespeare's."

"This play has become a New Zealand classic, perfomed everywhere and a fixture on school and university curricula."

"History is rewritten, speeches reworked and best of all, the best lines go to an incredibly hard-thinking Ophelia."

"A passionate exploration of female myth and reality; patriarchy, marriage, the cult of the virgin - all get a right going-over."

"Energy, scope, intellectual challenge and triumphant theatricality. Perfect play pillaging."
