Women Playing Hamlet follows former soap opera actress Jessica Bisset (Jennifer Teska), who has just been cast as the dark prince. Plagued by insecurities, Jessica seeks guidance from Shakespearean scholars and a celebrated acting coach (Joy Sudduth), but gains insight into the role from less conventional sources (multiple roles played by Amy Fulgham, Lori Funk, Jake Lipman, and Hannah Sloat). A comedy about performing a tragedy.
