“The Ophelias: Badass Voices,” An MFA Project
Wyatt Pavilion Theatre

Playwright and director Janey Pintar explores the intriguing character of Ophelia from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet in her MFA project The Ophelias: Badass Voices. The work will be presented by the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance April 13-16 in the Wyatt Pavilion Theatre.

Who is Ophelia today? Are there real-life versions of her in our world? What would Shakespeare’s Ophelia do if she was given another chance at life? The Ophelias: Badass Voices, a play with movement, explores fictional and non-fictional Ophelias who succeed in opposing life’s challenges. This empowering story uplifts the courageous, determined, intelligent, and badass voices in our world.
