A comedy about a tragedy, join community theatre group Scorpio Theatre as it opens its season with William Missouri Downs’ Women Playing Hamlet.

Following Jessica, an insecure actor who sent into a tailspin when cast in the lead role, the show provides a unique opportunity for the Calgary theatre community and showcases an all-female cast performing multiple roles alongside a primarily female crew.

Women Playing Hamlet runs October 5 to 13, 2018 at the Joyce Doolittle Theatre, Pumphouse Theatres (2140 Pumphouse Ave. SW).
