a room in the castle

See Cincinnati Shakespeare’s A Room in the Castle at the Otto M. Budig Theatre from January 22 to February 9.

In this parallel retelling of Hamlet from Ophelia and Gertrude’s perspectives, the focus shifts to their emotional journey amidst the chaos of the Danish court. Ophelia’s narrative begins with the blossoming of a secret romance with Hamlet, filled with promise and youthful passion.

As the court’s intrigue deepens, Ophelia and Gertrude are ensnared in a web of political machinations and familial expectations, struggling to maintain power and agency. Will their ending confirm Shakespeare’s original or liberate them from it? Find out in the World Premiere of Lauren Gunderson’s A Room in the Castle.

Tickets to A Room in the Castle

Tickets to A Room in the Castle range from $14 – $74.
