why Ophelia

why revisit a tragic female character as the main point of reference in a discussion about the role of women in Western society?

I’m sure you are aware of ‘Languages of Theatres Shaped by Women’, book by Jane De Gay and Lizbet Goodman (references to Ophelia in ‘I, Hamlet’, performance by Jane Prendergast)

Just for info – this was on at the Linbury Studio Theatre from 3-6 Feb: ‘Dalston Songs’, a song theatre by Helen Chadwick inspired by the stories and memories of people in her local community in Dalston, East London, where many different cultures co-exist.
