Susana Cook, FF Alumn, presents Hamletango at WOW Cafe through March 30th
Prince of Butches
Written and directed by Susana Cook
A working class
butch prince, the ghost of her mother and 13 handsome ladies
bring to life a party of classic ghosts and tragic orgasms. What do you get when an Argentinean immigrant and her gang of butches decide to do Shakespeare?
"The most feminist, erotic, exotic and hysterical adaptation of Hamlet I've ever seen." Juliet Capulet, The Daily Bard.
Was Hamlet a lesbian? What would have happened if he was? Would it still be a classic? Is the classic culture too straight? Or just straight? Or white? What if Hamlet was a Spic? What if he wasn't a prince? What if He was working class? What was happening with the working class at that time? Were they also killing each other? Were they seeing ghosts too? What would a ghost have told them? Were they asking them for revenge? Were they sad when the whole royalty killed each other?
The power of the classics. The power of lesbians. The lesbians of the classics.
