Women Playing Hamlet, ran at NHTP through in January-February 2022. The play is a sophisticated new comedy with four women playing multiple roles. The titular character Jessica faces a personal existential crisis when cast as the Prince of Denmark. Can a woman play one of the greatest male roles in Shakespeare? What other women have played the role and why don’t we remember their names? Under all the fun, this play asks the serious question of whether or not true equity is realizable in theatre - and in any contemporary workplace. As NHTP’s season theme asked: Are We There Yet?
The community discussion around Equity in the Workplace included three remarkable panelists who will shared their expertise, experience, ideas, hopes and dreams. Stephanie Bramlett, Ph.D, is the Director of Equity and Inclusion at Phillips Exeter Academy. Joan Gile is the President of Piscataqua Savings Bank. Crystal Paradis is Director of Strategic Communications and Community Engagement, NH Women’s Foundation.
