Is equality a state of mind or state of affairs? Can gender ever be freed from the masculine/feminine paradigm? The patriarchal state may seem a thing of the past but what if the struggle for power and survival make it our future. Inspired by the “He For She” Campaign, a first of its kind, which acknowledges the need for men in the women’s movement, A.N.O.N. Productions is proud to present a new take on HAMLET, set in the near future. In a militarized surveillance state, can a woman be in charge? This gender-bending equality driven take on HAMLET will premiere under St. Mark’s (94 St. Mark’s Place) November 9, 12th -14th at 2 and 7pm, and at The Kraine (85 East 4th Street) November 15th – 17th. “If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are—we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom.” - Emma Watson, Ambassador, “HeForShe Campaign” Directed by Ashley Griffin and featuring: Michael Bauer*, Annabel Capper*, Jennifer-Elizabeth Cooper, Nevin Edmundson, Ashley Griffin*, Kari Grunberg*, James Luse*, Brian McCormack*, Danielle Sacks* and Ian Way*; Our Hamlet is a woman raised to be a man and ruthless leader. Our Ophelia is a man, bullied for being too gentle. All sexes being equal, who has the power?
