Contemporary adaptation of Shakespearian tale
The Day Dream presents Ophelia's Inner Monologue, a contemporary adaptation written by Aridhi Anderson, on now at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Ophelia's Inner Monologue is a contemporary adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, seen from Ophelia's perspective.

A young girl's already-complicated life spirals into chaos when her boyfriend's uncle murders his father and marries his mother.

Ophelia struggles to find a balance between exploring her identity, fulfilling her duties towards her family and society, supporting her unstable boyfriend through his darkness, and finding light on her own. At the end of her rope, she turns to the internet for advice.

Ophelia's Inner Monologue is a fresh and witty exploration of the timeless themes of love, identity and death, guaranteed to provoke thought and emotion – along with a generous dose of laughter!

Warning: Contains coarse language, adult themes, references to suicide
